We have begun a book study this week, based on the book Chicka Chicka Boom Boom by Bill Martin, Jr. This book is a great springboard for tying in alphabet learning and literacy. You can find our book study activities below.
I have had these collecting dust in my closet for probably 2 years:
I just didn't know what I could do with alphabet bean bags...but I took them out of storage and came up with this Literacy Activity Center:
Students lay alphabet flashcards around the carpeted area of the classroom. Then they take the beanbags and, taking turns, toss their beanbag onto the flashcard that has the same letter as their beanbag.
This activity is great on so many levels: letter matching, hand-eye coordination, physical activity, and cooperation-- all in one center.
I would LOVE to know if you have any other great ideas for these alphabet bean bags...just post in the comments below!
