Alphabet Play

This is a lovely idea I saw in my colleague Kati’s classroom.  I had to make one for my class and share it with you.

 It is easy to set up.  Put the printed pages into page protectors and slip into a binder.  (I have included a cover for the binder.)
You will need the JUMBO glass gems for the activity.  This activity requires adult supervision with those discs.  This is not recommended for very young children.  Be wise.  You can also use large flat river rocks.
 The children put the gems on the letter.
So much fun!

  1. So fun and so simple!

    Thanks for sharing.

    Wishing you a lovely weekend.

  2. I love this idea! It would be fun to do with numbers, too, and have the kids put the correct number of gems on the page. They do love those gems! 🙂 I just found your blog. It has so many great ideas and I love how it is set up. I just started a blog and would love you to stop over. 🙂 Carolyn
