I love literacy stations!
I love giving my students a variety of materials and ways to show their understanding. I also strive to make LA as fun as possible. So, here are some of my favorite ABC station activities!
Lowercase Letters with Snap Cubes
Students use the connecting cubes to build the lowercase letters! Great fine motor practice! Check them out HERE!
ABC Matching Mats
Great resource for identifying letters and sounds. Students grab a magnetic letter and find the matching picture on the mat. They can either color the picture or just put the letter on top. Easy! Both freebies can be found here on my TPT store.
Students use ABC puzzles to practice matching upper and lowercase letters, or putting letters in order. We ordered most of these from Lakeshore!
Students use dollar store cookie trays and magnetic letters to spell words/names.
Students practice identifying letters and reading the variety of ABC books we have.
Missing Letter Stamps
This is a new one! Students use letter stamps to fill in the missing letters on the chart. You could switch it up and do all uppercase or all lowercase (but make sure you have the right stamps!). Here is the FREE Missing Letter Stamp paper!
Students use the shape blocks to build their letters. Go HERE to find this awesome freebie courtesy of Confessions of a Homeschooler.
Write the Room
Students use the paper with a clipboard and walk around the room to write words/names they recognize. My rule is they have to be able to read it back to me! Look HERE for the FREE Write the Room paper!
Read the Room
Students find words in the classroom that begin with every letter of the alphabet. Go HERE for the FREE worksheet!
Digging for Letters!
I filled a bin with rice and toss in some foam letters (I used dollar store foam ABC puzzles). Students reach in and dig to find the ABC's. As they find the letters they color in the matching letter on the paper. The kids really enjoy searching through the sand! Click HERE for the FREE paper!
Handwriting with White Boards
Students use white boards to practice writing their letters correctly. You could go high tech and do it on the SmartBoard!
Big Book Center
Students find the letter of the week (this week it is Yy) in our laminated magazines and big books. They circle the letters and then erase with a tissue when done. As the year progresses we move to Sight Words and even Punctuation marks!
Students find words starting with the different letters of the Alphabet and cut them out of magazines. This one keeps them busy for a long time! Click HERE to grab the freebie!
Students can use magnetic letters to put letters in ABC order. So easy! Find this resource HERE!
I hope you got some new great ideas for your Literacy Stations!
