At Home Letter Hunt Activities
- We’re going on a Letter Hunt- Using magazines, go on a scavenger hunt looking for letters. Find a letter, cut it out, and glue it to a piece of paper or poster board. Challenge your child to tell you the name of the letter, the sound, or something that starts with that letter.
- Letter sort with sticky notes-Write individual letters of the alphabet on sticky notes and place them all around the house. Here are some fun things you can do with those letters:
Find a letter that is in your name.
Find a vowel.

Find the letter C, M, S, A, Z, etc.
Find a letter that is in your brother/sister’s name.
