There seems to be an endless need for alphabet games in early childhood classroom. With 26 letters and even more sounds it is no surprise teachers are constantly searching for a new alphabet activity to practice letters in a new way.
With all the talk and action about removing kitchens from early childhood classrooms it is up to teachers to prove that they are perfect for our little learners. While some administrators see play as the only reason for having kitchens in the classroom I would be happy to prove them wrong.
My classroom kitchen is always used as a literacy station for my learners. How do I bring literacy and cooking together? It’s all about being clever and one way is to bring some food into your literacy centers.
I found this alphabet pasta at Walmart and snatched them up for a learning activity. I made an alphabet page for my kiddos to match capital to capital and capital to lowercase letters.
