Looking for a new spelling manipulative? These awesome {magnetic!} letter rocks would make a great addition to your literacy center. They have so many uses for both beginning and more advanced learners!

  • Go on a letter scavenger hunt - "Can you find letter 'B'?"
  • Have your students put the letter rocks in alphabetical order.
  • Print upper and lower case letter cards and have your kiddos match the rocks to the appropriate card.
  • Hide the rock letters around the classroom and invite your students to find them in alphabetical order.
  • Invite students to identify the letters in their names. [Extension: Have students identify the letters in their classmates' names. Provide the with a class roster to use as a guide.]
  • Show students clip art pictures of various items. Invite them to choose the alphabet rock with the correct beginning letter sound.
  • Have your kiddos practice spelling CVC and sight words using the rock letters, using flash cards or a worksheet as a guide.
