Alphabits – November 28 and 29

LETTER OF THE DAY: K
(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
Who wants to share what they brought beginning with the letter K?

Story: Five Little Kittens (by Nancy Jewell)

Activity: Kangaroo Jumps
The kids got in a “kanga” line and we jumped around the room in a circle just like kangaroos!

Craft: Kites
Using construction paper, string, crayons and the letter K, we decorated and made kites! Sadly, there was no wind in the room to see if they would fly.

Activity: Word Bingo
Each child was given a coloring page of something that begins with K (there were three different ones – a koala, a king and a kite). In between coloring their pages, letters were chosen out of a basket. If their K 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 jumping 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.
