Why GIANT letters? Well because they are BIG of course, which makes them that much more fun! Giving kids the opportunity to climb, bend and stretch as they construct a letter gives them yet another way to learn.
All you need is painter's tape and a place to build! The more room the better. Think about spots in your classroom that will have ample space for building, such as your block center or your main meeting area. Don't limit yourself to the classroom either, giant letters work awesome in the gym, or even outside!
USE GIANT LETTERS AS A WAY TO INTRODUCE NEW LETTERS
Giant letters are a great way to introduce new letters to your kiddos. Head over to your morning meeting space and stick long pieces of painter's tape to the floor to form the letter you will be introducing. Grab some blocks, tiny people, cars and more. Have the children help you make a letter e zoo or maybe a letter e town or even a letter e amusement park, the possibilities are endless!
CUPS, CUPS, CUPS!
Who doesn't love those iconic red cups? Well, it's time to bring those cups into the classroom. (Without the booze, of course!) Grab a few big packs of colorful cups and add them to your list of go to materials. They are perfect for so many activities.
LETTER BUILDING STEM CHALLENGE
STEM activities have become increasingly popular over the years, and for good reason. These activities encourage problem solving and higher order thinking. So break your kiddos up into teams and challenge them to build the tallest letter tower!
