I love finding engaging ways to make learning fun and practice basic skills like beginning sounds. Plus, alphabet centers are something that I can never have enough of! I also love an activity that gets kids up and moving while learning. This free Write the Room Beginning Sounds Activity is sure to do just that!
*Pair with our Beginning Sound Centers and Activities for Pre-K & Kindergarten!
Write The Room Beginning Sounds Activity
This freebie comes with two recording sheets and two different sets of cards that allow for differentiation. That means it can be used with both Preschool and Kindergarten aged children!
This activity is super fun and versatile! Hang the cards around the room as a way to get your kids up and moving or place the cards in a small basket and add this activity to your literacy centers. Either way, your kids are sure to love it!
How to Prep
The prep for this write the room activity is simple. First, print out the set of cards and recording sheets that you would like to use for your group of students.
I like to print the cards on cardstock for durability and then laminate them for continued use. Cut them apart and then hang the cards around the room.
Print off the recording sheet and attach it to a clipboard. A clipboard will hold the paper in place and give the students something hard to write on as they move around the room.
Teacher Tip: Slide the recording sheet into a dry erase pocket sleeve and give the kids a dry erase marker to complete. This will cut down on copies and make the recording sheet reusable!
Time to Write the Room!
To play, students will walk around the room looking for beginning sound cards. When they find a card, they will identify the beginning sound, and write or trace the letter that each word begins with next to the picture on the recording sheet.
Continue until the kids have completed the recording sheet. There is one picture card for each letter sound.
The recording sheet for each level (writing and tracing) is two pages. You can print these double sided to save on paper.
- Print the two different sets of cards on cardstock and use them as a beginning sounds matching game.
- Use the cards and letter manipulatives to identify the beginning sounds and match each card with a letter.
