Fun with Spelling

Spelling and Literacy Kindergarten Lesson Plan

Here's a simple spelling exercise we found at Kingdom of the Pink Princesses that is sure to strengthen your kinders' command of the alphabet and phonics!

Supplies You'll Need

  • Activity mat {a fun place mat would work perfectly}
  • Letter manipulatives {they can be wooden, plastic, magnetic, stickers, or anything else you can think of!}
  • Objects from around the classroom

To complete the activity simply set out the mat, letters, and the bin of collected objects. One at a time, have your kiddos pull out an item, using the letter manipulatives to sound out and spell the word. [NOTE: If you wish for them to be able to spell multiple words at a time, you'll need several sets of letters!] For less advanced learners, you might set out both the objects and word cards for students to match then practice spelling.
