Children choose a letter out of a bucket and dab it with a bingo marker. (Different colour for each letter.) Good for letter recognition. Do something similar with numbers 1 through 10 or Can add pictures for sound recognition also
Name Puzzles. Do each kid's name in a different color and keep 5 or 6 names in an envelope. (This would be good for kids learning the names of the other kids in their reading group). Can also add a picture to it. OR can use for weekly spelling words
Maybe I can use my old stamps with Playdoh instead of this nasty stamp pad .Fun way to practice making words! You could also give students a limited number of letters and a focus vowel, then see how many rhyming CVC words they could make!
