Alphabet People

You'll Need

15" circle of white paper,crayons,stapler or tape,hole punch,pipe cleaners
I teach second grade and used this activity for a review of initial consonant sounds at the beginning of the year: Tell the children that they are all going to change their names for the day and become "alphabet people". Give each child a 15" circle of paper and assign each child a consonant. Have the child cut out one-quarter of the circle (I tell them to separate the "pie" into four pieces and cut out one piece.) Then, have the child write their new "name" (the consonant) below the "v" that was cut out of the circle so that it will appear on the front of the hat when rolled up like a cone. The children then decorate the hats with pictures of things that start with the sound of their new name. For example, Mr. or Ms. B would draw things like bumble bee, bus, box, etc. After the children are through drawing, roll the circles up like a cone and staple or tape together. Punch a hole and insert a pipe cleaner in each side as chin straps to hold the hats on. All day long, refer to the children by their letter names. When they've grown accustomed to this, call on them by saying words that begin with their letter. For example, when you call on "brown", Mr. or Ms. B would answer. You can also read a simple story and have the children stand up and then sit back down when they hear their names. It's lots of fun!
