Preschool Alphabet Activities – Sensory

Teaching Preschool Alphabet Activities the Fun Way!Preschool Alphabet Activities & Sensory:

Looking for a unique sensory type learning activity to teach your preschoolers the Alphabet and it’s letters? This preschool alphabet activity will help preschoolers to learn the alphabet, the sounds of letters, words that start with the various letters of the alphabet and will help develop fine motor skills etc.

 

Requirements for this Preschool Alphabets Activity:

  • Get a plastic sensory bin and fill it with some water.
  • Get some ping pong balls, or small styrofoam craft balls.
  • On each styrofoam craft ball or ping pong ball draw each letter of the alphabet with a black permanent marker. (You will need one ball for each letter of the alphabet)
  • Place the balls in the water (sensory bin) they will float around on top. You could use a couple heavier style balls like ‘golf balls’ but then you dont want children throwing these around or at each other. *You must use supervision & your own discretion.
  • Provide various items like ‘tongs’, small fish nets or ‘spoons, laddles, etc. for the children to use to ‘remove’ the balls one at a time.

How to Use this Preschool Alphabet Activity:

You could let the children or preschoolers each have a turn trying to remove the next ball in alphabetic order. *If you had the room and containers for it you could have a box or container each with a few letters of the alphabet on it.

Doing this will allow the children or preschoolers to then ‘drop’ the balls into each container or box that matches the letter of the alphabet written on the outside.

(ex.) Container is labelled A, B, C, D. The children will then drop the balls that match these lketters into that container or box etc.

You could allow the preschoolers or young children to pull out the balls in the correct order, which involves them searching around a little more or you could let them pull the balls out as they find them and match them to the proper container.

You could allow the preschool kids or children to use only specific tools to remove the balls from the sensory bin, like only using a spoon. Or you could let them pick what ever tools that they want to remove the balls from the water.

You can decide all these rules for the learning game. As teacher or care provider, you can discuss the letter with the children each time they remove a new ball from the water.

You can discuss the pronunciation of that letter. You can discuss words that start with that letter etc.

Use your imagination to keep learning alphabets fun for the children preschoolers in your classroom or at home.

Alphabet Activities for Preschoolers

Get Creative with your Alphabets Activities for Preschoolers!Alphabet Activities for Preschoolers & Children:

Looking for unique, exciting ways to teach preschoolers & kindergarten children all about the alphabet in the preschool or kindergarten classroom?

Looking for Preschool Alphabet themes or alphabet lesson plans?

Learning the alphabet is an important part of a young child’s learning & development as they progress into reading, writing & spelling areas of their learning.

Here is a fun creative activity or preschool alphabet theme you can use with your child or the children and preschoolers in your care.

Alphabet Activities Theme & Circle Time Activity:

Each week you could have a different letter of the alphabet be the focus of learning during your circle time activities etc.

So, starting with the letter ‘A’ you could devote an entire 5 day week to discussing the letter ‘A’ during your circle time activities and your routine.

Get a Large Poster or Picture of the Letter for that Week:

Find a large letter, draw a large letter or find a poster with the letter of the week and have it displyed in the circle time area or classroom where the children can see it.

Everyday, for the week of the letter in question, you could then discuss a new ‘word’ that starts with that Letter of the Week.

  • For Example: Letter of the Week is ‘A’ – You would need a large picture of a letter ‘A’ and a small ‘a’ together so that the children can see the letter of the week.
  • Each day of the week (Monday – Friday) you will ‘focus’ on a different ‘word’ that starts with the Letter of the Week (ex.) Apple.
  • You could talk about Apples & how they start with the letter A.
  • Have everyone say the word ‘APPLE’ and pronounce or emphasize and repeat the ‘AHH’ sound for the word ‘Apple’ 
  • Bring apples into the classroom. Show how they can come in different colors.
  • Bring in ABC Books, books on the Letter A, or a Book on Apples etc. Emphasizing the letter of the Week, in this example, the Letter A.
  • You could also find songs that deal with the letter of the week or that deal with the letter of the day. (ex.) “Farmer Brown had 5 Red Apples” etc.
  • You could actually even let children taste ‘Apples’ or ‘Apple juice’ keeping the focus on this being a fruit that starts with the Letter A.

Sensory Bin Activity:

Set up a sensory bin with some water. Place in some ‘plastic’ apples along with some washclothes or scrub brushes and let the children play with the apples in the water. The preschoolers can pretend they are washing apples.

Art Shelf Activities:

You could have alphabet printable coloring pages dealing the Letter of the week, or objetcs that start with the letter of the week (ex.) Apple coloring pages etc..

Preschool Classroom Library Materials:

You can have books that deal with the Letter of the week, or deal with the word of the day (ex.) Kids books about ‘Apples’ or other words or topics that start with that letter for the preschoolers. ABC Books work for that.

*This is only 1 simple example of things you can do for teaching preschoolers and young children about their alphabet. You can go through the entire alphabet, 1 Letter per Week and each day have a new ‘word’ based on the Letter of the Week.

Simply provide, pictures, books & objects as discussed above about the Letter of the Week and emphasize the pronunciation of the letter in the word and teach children about the ‘word of the day’.

Use your imagination to teach children & preschoolers about the alphabet and words that begin with the letters of the alphabet.

We will be discussing more on similar themes and preschool ideas about alphabets soon..

ABC Learning Games – Alphabet Activity

ABC Learning Games & Alphabet Activities for KidsABC Learning Game:

This alphabets for kids learning game activity is a little more advanced than what a preschooler may not know right from the start. Some preschoolers may be able to do this, depending of their level of understanding of the alphabet and it’s letters and pronunciation of certain words etc.

You will have to assess your child’s level of development when it comes to their ABC’s and understanding of the ”sounds’ of each letter of the alphabet.

This alphabet learning game for kids is a sort of ‘grouping’ game where children ‘group words’ according to the alphabetic letter they start with.

 

What You Need To Do For This Alphabets for Kids Game:

Use any of our alphabet printables or large alphabet letter printables as found on this alphabets for kids website.

If you don’t use these alphabet printable found on our website here, simply find or make your own large letters for each letter of the alphabet.

(eg.) A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z

You could then ‘glue’ each letter to it’s own small box (shoebox etc.) or glue each alphabet letter to it’s own piece of bristol board or construction paper.

Finding Images to match the Alphabet Letters:

Take some old grocery store & retail store flyers and some old magazines etc. that you no longer need or use. You can start cutting out images & large words that correspond to each letter of the alphabet.

For example: For the letter ‘A’ you could cut out pictures of ‘apples’, ‘almonds’, ‘airplanes’ etc.. as well as cutting out large words that you find that start with the letter ‘A’. You would do the same for the letter ‘B’ and so on.

You want to get alot of various pictures and words cut out.

*All these images and pictures and words could be laminated or glued to a thicker paper like construction paper or bristol board to make them last for years if desired.

Let the Alphabetic Letter Sorting Begin:

With all your images and words spread out on a table or on the floor.

You can let the children and preschoolers go though and try to sort the images and words according to their alphabetic letter that each starts with, by placing them in the appropriate letter box or on the proper letter board until they are all sorted.

You will get an idea on how well the children know their alphabets, by how well they recognize the letters in the words and the sounds of the letters in the image names.

How You Can Help Kids:

You can pull out images and words from the pile and pronounce them and ask the children or child where they think each image or word should be placed.

If the children or preschoolers hear you pronounce the words and names of the images it will help them to figure out what should be placed under each letter box or letter board.

Possible Variation to this Alphabet Learning Game:

One possible variation for this game to help children with their observational, social & gross motor skills is to allow them to search through flyers and magazines for images and words based on one letter at a time.

For example: Everyone finds images or large words that start with the letter ‘D’ , you can discuss things about the letter D as this activity is being done.

* This is just one simple alphabet learning game for children. There are many other alphabet learning games & ABC learning ideas we will be trying to share with you on this www.alphabetsforkids.net learning website.
