Alphabits – January 16 and 17, 2013

(please note: this is a general idea of what happened during Alphabits. Variations occur between Wednesday and Thursday classes depending on how many children are present, attention level, etc.)

Song: Alphabet Song

Activity: Show and Tell
The children shared what they brought that begins with the letter P!

Story: If You Give a Pig a Party (by Laura Numeroff)

Activity: What’s in the Pocket?
Turns out it was four purple socks

Activity: Pokey Pokey
The Hokey Pokey really slowwwwly

Activity: Porcupine Song

Activity: Penguin craft
The kids turned the letter P into a penguin using a crayon and a black wing. Waddle waddle waddle!

Activity: Word Bingo
Each child was given a coloring page of something that begins with P. In between coloring their pages, letters were chosen out of a basket. If their P word had that letter in it, they circled it. Once every letter in their word was circled, they have BINGO!

Activity: Parachute
We brought out the big parachuteWe did some activities and then we put on music and the kids danced underneath while the grown-ups held it high.

Song: Alphabet Song
After the parachute, the kids each chose a letter from those scattered on the floor. Then we all sang the Alphabet song one more time; this time, when we say each letter of the Alphabet, the boy or girl holding that letter is encouraged to hold it up high.
