Waddle You Do, To Help Students With Letter Recognition?
Are you studying penguins with your students?
This was one of my Y5’s favorite themes. I think they are so adorable and enjoy designing with them.
I just finished Penguin Letter Puzzles
Since putting together a puzzle as well as identifying letters were report card standards, I decided to combine the 2 activities.
Print, laminate and cut out the puzzles. Store them in a file folder or manila envelope.
Students spill them out at a center and work on matching the lowercase letter on the heart to the uppercase letter on the balloon.
You can also pass them out and play “I Have; Who Has?” “I have the uppercase letter A. Who has the matching lowercase letter?
Students enjoy these reinforcement games because they are easy and fun, and you have a chance to whole-group assess to see who is having difficulty and needs extra help.
When children can do these activities successfully, you can give them the two certificates of praise.
I’ve also included a set without the puzzle lines, so you can put them on the wall for a December or January ABC border.
There’s a blank page as well, so you can program the penguins with numbers, names, words, equations etc.
