Phonics & Magnet Fun!

Easy activity for prek or kindergarten centers
My little is getting ready for PreK-4. He LOVES the alphabet and word work activities so we've been doing some fun things at home while little brother naps during the afternoon. Texas summers are HOT, HOT, HOT so we are staying inside and having some fun. Check it out.
Alphabet magnets
We've got tons of assorted magnets around the house (letters, animals, vehicles), but I saw these magnets in the Target Dollar Spot and had to have them. Of course, I needed the bright green, wooden caddy, too!
Classroom organization and supplies
I store our magnets in these Sterilite stackable tubs. The green caddy is the perfect addition. Easy access for the new magnets.
Word work activity
I set up our magnet board with seven "headers" for our magnet sort: A, B, C, D, E, F, G
My son is 4, but if you've got older kiddos, challenge them with a different sort, or let them create their own.
Perfect for centers and work stations in Pre-K and Kindergarten
 He got right to work! He wanted to count which letter had the most to see "who was winning." So competitive! :)
Phonics activity
Stepping back...Thinking hard...
Preschool and Kindergarten word work activity
That face though!  :) 
Here is a short video of my guy in action. It's so cool to watch the wheels turning in his head as he figures out where each magnet goes.
Skills addressed: Letter recognition, letter sound correspondence, matching uppercase and lowercase letters, sorting, initial sounds...
Extension: Have kiddos practice writing uppercase and lowercase letters on the easel or dry erase board. Students could also draw additional pictures in their journals or on the easel for each letter.
