Practice Letter Recognition with a Letter Box

Letter Box Activity

I'm always looking to for fun, purposeful activities to use when I have a few extra minutes! This activity includes music, movement, and letter recognition. Fill a box, bag, or any container you can find with letters. I used these felt letters I got from Target but you can use magnetic letters, letter tiles, or just write letters on small pieces of paper. Have your little scholars sit or stand in a circle and pass the box of letters around as they sing the song. The child with the box of letters at the end of the song will choose a letter, show it to their classmates, and name it. You can repeat this as much as time allows!

Ways to Modify This Activity

  • Have your little scholars produce the letter sound 
  • Put numbers in the box instead of letters
  • If you're using die cuts or magnetic letters, ask your little scholars to close their eyes, feel the letter, then name it 




You can find lots more alphabet activities here.
