Lead your child on a letter hunt. Write several of the same letter on a piece of paper and cut them out. Lay the letters down in a trail that leads to an object that starts with that letter. For example, you would lay a trail of “B”s down the hallway and into your child’s bedroom that ended at a stuffed bunny.
-If your child can read, then write down the whole word and cut out the letters. You can make a trail with the letters (in the correct order of the word) that eventually leads to the object that the word spells.
-Write down a whole word and cut out the letters. Hide the letters and let your child find them. Then help your child unscramble the letters and ask your child to find an object that the word spells. This can be a race between you and your child or between siblings. See who can unscramble the word and bring an object to you first.
-This activity would be great practice for spelling words! Hide the letters of a spelling word. Let your child find the letters and unscramble the word. You can make two sets of letters to race against your child in completing the words first.
