Spin and Cover Letters
Letter recognition is a skill we work on all year long in Pre-K and Kindergarten. So I get excited when I find a new, interactive way to work on letters like this Spin and Cover Letters activity!
This pack includes 6 letter mats to choose from. Pick your mat and have students use a pencil and paperclip to spin a lowercase letter. Then they use a cube to cover the matching uppercase letter.
Number Building Cards
Number recognition is another skill that is super important in early childhood classrooms. These Number Building Cards work on both recognizing numbers AND number writing skills. Win-Win!
To play, kids start by building the numbers using cubes. Then they trace the numbers on the bottom of the card. Cards for numbers 0-20 included!

Building cube towers is a fan favorite with students so this Word Family Towers activity is sure to be a hit in your literacy centers! Choose from 3 word family mats. (-at, -ot, -et, -an, -in, -un, -ap, -up, -up)
When it’s time to play, kids pick a word card and cover the matching picture to build the word family towers. So simple and fun!
