Welcome to week 3 of Kindergarten! This weekend I created some Beach Ball letter centers! We're going to have a "ball" (ha. ha.) catching and shouting out the letters we feel! Here's how it works: Kids stand in a circle and toss the ball to each other. When a child catches the ball they trace a finger over one of the letters on the ball and shout it out. There is a response sheet that goes along with the activity where the kids can write down the letters after they trace them with their fingers!
Children who are ready to move on can say the letter, sound, and word that the letter starts with! On their response sheet, the children write a word that the letter starts with.
Children who need more practice can trace the letter on the response sheet instead of writing it themselves. They can then move on to the next level when they are ready.
Hooray! A level for everybody and fun for all! I will upload pictures of the centers when we complete them - I am super excited!
