Nov 07, 2023

Today, let's do 10 DIY phonics teaching hacks for ages 2-5.

Are you ready?

1. Salt letter tracing - Have kids trace letters in salt on a baking sheet to build tactile recognition.

2. Letter puppets - Make puppets using popsicle sticks, googly eyes and glue for interactive sound practice.

3. Pipe cleaner letters - Bend colorful pipe cleaners into letter shapes to reinforce formation.

4. Sensory bins - Fill tubs with beads, pom poms, etc. and have kids find objects starting with the sound.

5. Letter movement - Assign an action like jumping for J while saying the sound.

6. Magnetic fishing - Use makeshift magnetic rods and letter fish to catch matching sounds.

7. Letter rubbings - Place letters under paper and rub crayons over to trace the shape.

8. Letter puzzles - Glue letters onto cardboard and cut into piece puzzles to reassemble.

9. Sound match eggs - Put small objects or pictures in plastic eggs corresponding to the beginning sound.

10. Music and motion - Sing songs and chant rhymes while incorporating movement.

With a little creativity, you can easily make engaging Do-It-Yourself (DIY) phonics activities using household materials!

These hands-on hacks make early skills practice fun.
