Good readers notice letters and words everywhere. Here is a great activity for using at school, at home, or even in the car. The activity is simple, but is great for raising letter awareness and working on letter recognition. Simply write letters around the edge of a styrofoam plate. Cut slits between each letter. When they find a letter, they rip that letter off of their plate until they have found the whole alphabet.
The kids had so much fun looking for letters all around the classroom.
They even found letters on someone's shirt and thought that was a lot of fun.
