Calling all Julia Donaldson fans! Do you love her book, Room on the Broom? You and many other young children do too. After enjoying the book, try this Room on the Broom Sequencing Activity to work on alphabet sequencing and identification.
The Book: Room on the Broom
Full Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links.
Julia Donaldson is one of my all-time favorite authors. Probably her most popular book is Room on the Broom.
While out on a broom ride, the wind blows away part of the witch’s belongings. Some animals find her missing articles and request a ride on the broom in return.
The Activity: ABC Sequencing Activity
Materials Needed: free printable (see below), magnetic letters (here are my favorites), and a witch finger (optional)
Purpose: Kids will sequence letters in order and identify letters of the alphabet both lowercase and uppercase.
- Print the sequencing cards (see free download below.)
- Cut cards apart and gather your other supplies.
Ready to Play
Time to play! Have the kids decide which magnetic letter should be placed on the witch’s broom. You can use just lowercase or uppercase cards. Or, you can mix them.
Have the kids use their witch finger to point to the letters and name them and/or say the sound that the letter represents.
Kids can also match the magnetic letters to the letters on each side of the broom.
Also, try having the kids match the lowercase letters with the uppercase letters on the sequencing sheets and vice versa.
