Alphabits – March 22, 2012

(please note: this is a general idea of what happened during Alphabits. Variations occur between 10:15am and 11:15am classes depending on how many children are present, attention level, etc.)

DVD: Chicka Chicka Boom Boom

Activity: Actions A to Z
We all did 26 different actions, from A all the way to Z

Activity: Flying Letters
The kids laid on their backs and watched as every foam letter in the alphabet flew over their heads. When all the letters were flung, the kids gathered them up and we all put them in order.

Activity: Body Letters
The kids each took the letters that they had and tried to replicate it with their bodies. Some letters needed kids to work together. And we took pictures.

Story: Sleepy Little Alphabet (by Judy Sierra)
Following the story, the kids all put the letters to “bed” in the bin – waiting until we use them again in the fall.
