Learn beginning letter sounds with toy animals in a hands on center

A while back I found this Alphabet poster at the dollarstore!  I wasn't sure at the time what I would use it for so I just tucked it away behind the bookshelf for someday when I would become inspired.  Well today the kids found it and created a fun way to learn beginning letter sounds with toy animals in a hands on center activity. 

Learn beginning letter sounds with toy animals and an abc poster


Each kid took a turn picking out an toy plastic animal from the basket and matching the animal to the poster based on the beginning letter sound of the animal.  This kept the kids busy for quite some time.  I have since used this activity with my kindergarten students many times and it is so great to see them making connections like "both cow and cat start with C" and "puppy starts with a P but dog starts with a D".

  1. I like the poster. We did a similar activity with an alphabet floor mat, but I like the way the poster already has the animals to give younger kids a clue what the letter sound might be. Thanks for sharing.
