Oh my goodness this was fun!This was the second adventure we went on for our "Reading Adventure" week. I am thinking of this week as more of a reading/alphabet adventure week. Most of the suggested activities for this week are alphabet based. We are using some alphabet activities and making up our own adventures.
The idea was to review our letters. To do this we had to go on an adventure to find each letter, and that adventure had to have a theme that started with said letter.
For example: We had to pick the apple that had an 'a' on it. Not every apple had one, it happened to be high in the tree. So we climbed the tree to pick the letter apple. We then took the letter back to our seats and wrote it down on a piece of paper. (more examples above)
The Dragons went in rounds picking the theme. The Dragon who picked the theme also created the way to find the letter.
We did all of this by playing pretend. We had no props except our bodies. This opened things up for a ton of imagination!
This activity was a great handwriting and moving activity. The Dragons knew they would be up and moving again as soon as they wrote the letter down correctly, this encouraged them to do it correctly the first time. We stuck to one letter at a time and split the alphabet into two sessions of adventures.
