- What Letter Comes Next?
This felt board activity can be
done in a couple of different ways. The first way
is for the teacher to hang on to all of the felt
circle letters and the second way is for the teacher
to pass out the felt circle letters to the children
at circle time.
Start by putting the grass on the
bottom of the felt board and the caterpillar head
on the upper left corner of the felt board.
If you are holding the alphabet
circles start by asking the children "Do you
want to help me build a caterpillar?" (The
children say yes). "Let's start with the letter
A" (put up letter A next to caterpillar head)
... "What letter comes next?" ... (children
shout out letter B ... put up letter B). "Our
Caterpillar is growing! Let's make him bigger ...
what letter comes next?" (children shout out
the letter C ... put up letter C) ... continue this
way until all of the letters are on the felt board.
Sing the Alphabet Song while pointing to each letter...
then randomly point to a letter and have children
shout out what letter you are pointing to... when
finished tell the children "Thank you for helping
my build a caterpillar".
If you have passed out the circle
alphabet letters to the children start the same
way but have children put the letters on the felt
