Using Clothes Pins in Learning
Literacy Pre-Reading Activity
We worked together to sort out the letters on the clothes pins. We did a few different activities with the clothes pins once we had all of the letters.
First, we went on a scavenger hunt around the yard, pinning our clothes pins to objects in nature with the corresponding letter. It was a fun pre-reading task to sound out things that we saw. Pinching the pins onto items was a fun fine motor task for both kids. We pinned R to “roots”.
S is for “sticks”.
We did a few quizzes for Little Guy. Big Sister and I thought of an item and said I know something that starts with the letter “S”. He had to think and look to find something that started with “s” as he sounded out sssss. This is such a great pre-reading activity for pre-readers.
C is for clover.
M is for moss.
A is for arborvitae. Time for a science lesson!
