For this activity, we placed laminated alphabet cards (printed side down) all around the ground on the soccer field.
Then, we passed out small foam letters to each child.
Then, the kids were off searching for their letter! Since they were face down, the children had to turn each one over until they found their match.
They had an awesome time! This is a great way to take your literacy outside and get some exercise in the process. Learning to read and write doesn't have to happen sitting at a table.
The kids did a great job and helped the others who were having a little bit of trouble. This can also be a good cooperative activity. Maybe you could pair the children up and give one the upper case and the other the lower case of the same letter. Please share your results if you try this activity!
