I shared How to learn word families with magnetic ABC’s on Tuesday as part of the series Fun Ways with ABC’s series. Today I’m showing you a sensory bin with an alphabet twist!
It is very simple to put together: all you need is birdseed, a bin and rocks that are marked with the alphabet.
Make two sets of A-Z’s. Then let the kids find the same letter in the bin.
My 5 year old and her 6 year old cousin loved looking for the letters and did recognize some of it. When it came to letters that are easily confused like the b, d, p, u, n, m, w, I drew lines underneath it to help them. This is especially great to practice those letters that can be reversed easily.
The hide and seek element captured their attention for a while, much longer than only working with the alphabet by itself.
Collaboration was one thing they did too, helping to find all the rocks and matching them together. Even little one joined in!
My sensory seeker could not resist getting into it, lol!
