How To Use The Alphabet Sorting Chicken and Egg Activity
There are a variety of ways that we have used Alphabet Sorting Activities.
The first low prep and simple version is to use one sorting mat at a time. Lay out all of the letters, or a portion of the letters. Kids can search through the letter cards to find the correct matching letters and connect them. One one of the sorting mats is complete, move onto the next. This can either be done in alphabetical order or in a complete random order.
If you have the space, this can be done vise versa as well. The Sorting Mats can be placed on the surface and have the letter cards in a stack. Child can find the matching mat for whichever letter is on top of the pile. Unless the child is only reviewing, this might be done best with just a few letters at a time.
This alphabet sorting activity can also be used in a scavenger hunt. You can start by hiding all of the letter cards in various places around the room or outside. Kids will run around, either independently or as a competition, to find the letter cards. Once a letter card is found, it can be run up to the sorting mat and placed on the correct one. If doing a competitive round, the kids can each have specific letters that they are to find. Meaning, if they find a letter that is not theirs, they have to leave it and go on the hunt again.
