Find your Letter

5 min1 participant

Let's play!

  1. Find the first letter of your name on the base plate.

  2. Say the letter.

  3. Say your name.

How to prepare

  • 1 base plate

  • All the letter bricks 

Place the bricks on the base plate in alphabetical order.

Facilitation tips

  • It is easier to locate the first brick on the base plate when the bricks start in the top left corner.

  • Capital letter signs are not used in this activity because it can be difficult for a young child to understand the concept of using 2 bricks for one letter.

  • Ask “How much did you get it right?”

  • Suggest to imagine a faster way to find a letter.

Possible variations

  • The same activity can be done choosing children’s names in the class and finding the initial letter sound of their names.

  • Find the first letter of words in a given category (animals, fruits…).

Children will develop these holistic skills

Cognitive

  • Discover the function of the written word
  • Discover the function of the written word: Identify letters and their order and then, depending on the letter, its sound value

Emotional

  • Develop motivation to read for pleasure

Creative

  • Utilize adapted games/materials during free time

Physical

  • Improve auditory discrimination skills
  • Improve auditory discrimination skills: Discriminate sounds in words (syllables)

Did you know?

  • An activity is meaningful when the child can relate new experiences to something already known. In play, children often explore what they have seen and done, or noticed others do, as a way of grasping what it means. By doing so, they can express and expand their understanding through a variety of media, symbols and tools.
