Alphabet Letter Identification Activities

Website: Kindergarten Alphabet Activities

Standards Correlation:


  • SC.K.N.1.4- Observe and create a visual representation of an object which includes its major features.
  • SC.K.P.9.1- Recognize that the shape of materials such as paper and clay can be changed by cutting, tearing, crumpling, smashing or rolling.
  • MAFS.K.CC.1.3- Read and write numerals from 0 to 20. Represent a number of objects with a written numeral 0–20 (with 0 representing a count of no objects).

Hint: Providing a variety of different building materials leads to creativity and those students that finish quickly can rebuild another letter with different materials. All students figured out quickly that clay acts as a “glue” in which to secure the other materials.
