Letter & Number Rice Activity
What kid doesn't like to dig in stuff and find hidden treasures? What if those treasures were the letters in their name? That might be motivating and fun! I filled a small container with rice for this, but you could use beans, sand, or even pom pom balls. Then hide the letters and watch them dig! I had some students find and match the letters of their name on a sheet.
You could also use this same basic activity in several other different ways.
~ match capitals to capitals
~ match lower case to lower case
~ match capitals to lower case
~ match letters with pictures that begin with the same sound
~ match numbers to numbers
~ match number problems to the number answers
This picture (above) shows the activity as matching the letter with the picture with the same ending sounds. The possibilities are almost endless!
I have made you the activity sheets to go with this. There are 2 capital letter sheets, 2 lower case sheets, and a number sheet. Grab them if you can use them!
