1-2-3 Come Make Some Letter Puzzles With Me
Woo hoo! I just finished another alphabet packet. I hope your little ones enjoy practicing letters with them, as much as I did designing the puzzles.
These letter puzzles are not only great as a center or word work activity, they make an inexpensive & fun gift for your kiddos for that special first day or week of school.
Print off each child's initial in color and laminate. Cut them apart, mix up the pieces and fasten with a paperclip. While you're doing all of those busy 1st-day activities, children can be putting their personal puzzle together.
Numbered strip-puzzles are a quick, easy & fun way to help your kiddos practice counting and sequencing numbers, as well as review lowercase letters and words that begin with that letter.
Each letter has a puzzle that counts by 1s to 10, counts backwards from 10 to 1 and skip counts by 10s to 100.
Make a laminated, full-color set, to use as an independent center, or do as a whole group activity.
For more word-work practice, older students cut their puzzle into strips, have them write the words that are featured in the picture.
After they have cut their puzzle into strips, they can write an additional word that begins with that letter, on the back of each strip.
For an interesting “craftivity” have students glue their puzzle to a sheet of brightly colored construction paper.
Remind them to leave a little bit of a gap between each section for an especially cool mosaic effect. Completed projects make an awesome bulletin board.
Another idea is to make a student-made classroom border, by assigning a different letter to each child. These could also be used for the letters above your word wall.
This jumbo letter puzzle packet is in my TpT shop. It's a whopping 163-pages long and just $3.95. Click on the link to pop on over. As always, there's a FREEBIE. I pulled the 6, lowercase letter "a" puzzles, so you can try them out. Click on the link to grab them.
That's it for today. Thanks for stopping by. Time to take a much-needed break and go kayacking with my hubby. Such a peaceful activity once you hit the water. Wishing you a lovely day.
