Learning coupled with play makes learning so much more fun for children. Hands on activities like this Alphabet Soup activity is one of those activities: learning takes place while playing, and children don’t even realize it!
I tried this activity with an eight year old autistic boy I see in therapy. He work with me and enjoyed the activity while learning too. We used our small foam alphabet letters to build some words:
And place the letters into alphabetical order, while singing the alphabet song. It was great to hear him sing, because this is something autistic children does not do often in therapy. This activity is perfect for young children that are interested in the alphabet letters, and for elementary school aged children to enhance their letter and spelling knowledge!
