Stepping Stones

Posted on: December 5, 2011

Stepping Stones: 26 white naugahyde (soft plastic) rectangles, 5” x 6”, with lower case red and blue letters painted on them in exact lettering as the sandpaper letters.

At Circle:

  1. Put out about 6 letters in a row from the center of the “ellipse” to the end of the ellipse, leaving a few inches between each one (for visual clarity).
  2. With 2 feet (slippers OK), jump on one and say the phonetic sound.  Jump to the next one and say the sound, etc.
  3. Let each child have a turn.  Use this as a transition activity.

During work time:

  1. Put the Stepping Stones in a nice basket on the language shelf, in the proper sequence, near the sandpaper letters.
  2. Show the children how to carry them to a rug.  They can get 2 rugs if they like.
  3. They may put out up to 5 letters, laying them horizontally on the length of the rug, or 5 more on the second rug.
  4. Then they may jump and say the sounds.  Two children can work together on this.
