There are many creative ways that educators can engage young learners in pre-reading activities.
For this one, we decided to use dice to teach us about six different letters.
These include letters H, P, C, B, A, and F.
Students were guided to spin this dice and say the letter name of the letter it landed on.
They they were given a “bee board” or different words associated with the bumble bee.
Each letter on the dice corresponded to a different word (provided with a picture).
Students then learned about the sound that the letter made and then applied toy bee figures to it.
