At this point in the year, most of my Kinders are working on letter recognition, so I changed out the sight words for the alphabet.
**This center is so easy - no lamination needed! I hardly ever say that!**
I printed the uppercase letters on yellow construction paper and the lowercase letters on white. I cut around each piece of popcorn, crumpled up the papers, and put the pieces in the popcorn containers.
Students pull out a piece of paper, smooth it out, and say the letter. You could also have them trace the letter, or use a crayon, dot marker, or highlighter to mark the letter. I have included a few different recording options for you to use.
I teach my students how to figure out the name of an unknown letter by using an alphabet chart and the alphabet song.
When a student doesn't know the name of a letter, they find the matching letter on the alphabet chart and place a clear colored marker on it. Then they sing the alphabet song as they point to each letter. When they get to the letter with the marker on it, they stop singing. The last letter they sang is the name of the unknown letter!
