Gift giving is the best part of the holiday season. Don’t you agree? In our house, we make an attempt to talk about how important giving is rather than receiving. We make a lot of our gifts to give, and it’s such a joy to see the creations the kids make. But of course, we can’t go without the kids receiving their special toys. We write letters to Santa with a list of “I want’s”. Those letters led me to create this fun Christmas alphabet sentence activity!
Letter Recognition and Beginning Sounds
This activity is full of reading skills you can cover no matter the age of your child!
Maybe you’re working on letter recognition with your preschooler. They don’t have to know how to read to make this activity effective. Read the sentence aloud and have your learner point to the highlighted letter. You can also ask “Point to the letter R after I read the sentence”. Or have your child just match the sentence strips to the lower case and upper case letters. After they match the letters, read aloud the sentence to them!
If your learner is a little more advance, you can work on initial sounds! Read the sentence aloud and have your child use the picture and beginning sound to find the right sentence.
Like I said, the possibilities with this activity are endless! These sentences are also good for the early elementary classrooms as well! The repetition of the sentences help your young learners with word recognition along with letter matching.
Oh! And this Christmas alphabet sentence activity is perfect for practicing alphaetical order!
