Why We Chose This Alphabet Activity
My kids adore car and truck play. Recently we shared some of our favorite literacy ideas to use with cars and trucks. After our playdough mazes we shared last week, we decided to expand the idea playing with cars.
Setting Up and Playing
1. On a large sheet of paper draw a maze. Create several “dead ends” throughout the puzzle.
2. Mark the beginning of the maze with “start” and the finishing spot with “end”.
3. At each dead end place a letter that your child needs to practice.
4. Place a toy car at the start line.
Your child is ready to play! Let your child drive through the maze. When he comes to a “dead end”, he should name the letter. The child could also say the sound the letter represents or name a word that begins with the letter.
The activity can be repeated with different letters or sight words.
My 4 year-old decided to line up all the letters as spectators. He gave each letter an animal name based on the letter sound.
After we were done playing, we rolled up the sheet to store for another day.
