Reinforce literacy skills with these fun, hands-on activities. Students will practice letter recognition and letter formations while using this fun manipulative.
I was really excited when I saw these 30 sided Alphabet Dice. I was trying to think of different ways to use these dice in our literacy centers and use them in fun, interactive games.
Whiteboard Alphabet dice Activity
Pair the dice with whiteboards- students can practice writing the uppercase and lowercase letters, making word lists, anything they can think of!
You can differentiate the activity based on the needs of your students, and reuse it all year to hit on different skills.
Loose Parts Alphabet dice Activity
Use the dice with the Rings and Sticks- I wrote about this manipulative a few weeks ago and I love its versatility. Put these two together and you’ve got a great new literacy center that is fun and engaging for students.
You can use any loose parts that you have in your classroom. Students can be creative, and make letters using a variety of materials.
Geoboard alphabet dice Activity
This provocation with geoboards and elastics works on their fine motor skills and their letter formation. Win-Win! My students always love using the pegboards, and
I am excited to have these alphabet dice as part of my classroom resources. They will be great for the start of the year activities and I am going to continue to find more ways to use them!
