Scavenger Hunt


As a home activity, have students cut out three samples of each alphabet letter from newspapers and magazines (consumable materials, not books) and present them in booklet format. Their booklet will include a page for the letter a, another page for the letter b, and so on). You can specify capital and/or lower case letters. Children will find different fonts (type styles), sizes, and colors -- all things to talk about. Let parents know that the objective is not a beautiful booklet or finishing the task in record time, but spending time together with words and letters.
