What kid doesn’t like to dig in stuff and find hidden treasures? What if those treasures were the letters in their name? That might be motivating and fun! I filled a small container with rice for this, but you could use beans, sand, or even pom pom balls. Then hide the letters and watch them dig! I had some students find and match the letters of their name on a sheet.
You could also use this same basic activity in several other different ways.
~ match capitals to capitals
~ match lower case to lower case
~ match capitals to lower case
~ match letters with pictures that begin with the same sound
~ match numbers to numbers
~ match number problems to the number answers
This picture (above) shows the activity as matching the letter with the picture with the same ending sounds. The possibilities are almost endless!
I have made you the activity sheets to go with this. There are 2 capital letter sheets, 2 lower case sheets, and a number sheet. Grab them if you can use them!
