Learning Letter Sounds – Letter ‘A’ Activity
Posted by July 11, 2013 2 Commentson
Learning the letter sound first and then the letter name is important for reading and writing development. Here is a simple, fun and engaging hands-on activity to promote the learning of the letter Aa. You will need the Printable Lower Case Letter Aa (below), PVA craft glue, small paint brush, red paper and an apple shaped hole punch. This activity can be completed with or without the glue. Miss 3 started the activity by just placing the apple shapes onto the letter ‘a’ with no glue. This meant she could play and sing over and over again. When using glue, use the paint brush to apply a thin layer of glue on the shape of the letter ‘a’ and then arrange the apples into place. I plan to use this activity with my Kindergarten class in one of our learning stations. I have laminated the printable several times and will have a small bowl of the apple cut outs for students to access. Click here to download and print: Printable Lower Case Letter Aa Learning Benefits
