Alphabet Rocks

Yesterday we shared seashell activities.
Today, we created and played with Alphabet Rocks.
Alphabet Rocks
Collect rocks and use a Sharpie to write the letters on them. Seal with Modge Podge (optional – we didn’t).

Alphabet Rock Activities:

Put the rocks in alphabetical order
Sort the Rocks – Capital/Lowercase
Match the Rocks – Capital/Lowercase
Spell your name
Make words
Identify Letters – “Can you find the N?”
Identify Letter Sounds – “Can you find the letter that says /n/?”
Write letters with chalk on the sidewalk and match the rocks to the letters.

    I love this idea!! It’s a good reason to get outside with the kids and do some exploring. Then we get to create the alphabet with the rocks we find. Thanks!!

    This is PERFECT! We’ll be heading out to our rocky beaches in search of alphabet rocks ASAP!
