Literacy Activities
Fit the F on the fish!

  • Write the uppercase letter F and lowercase letter f on a whiteboard, name the letters, and have the children write the F and f in the air with their fingers.
  • Show the children the large fish graphic and display it on the board.
  • Have a child draw a letter card out of the bowl.
  • Have the child show the class what the letter card is, and determine as a group whether or not the letter on the card is an uppercase or lowercase f.
    • If the letter on the card is an F or f, have the children say, “Fit the F on the fish!” and attach the letter card on the fish.
    • If a child misidentifies a distractor letter as the letter F, have the child compare the letter to the F or f on the whiteboard.
    • If the letter card is not an F or f, have the child place it in the discard pile.

More Practice
Identify the target letter

  • Give each child a small fish and fins graphic.
  • Help the children cut out the fins and then fit the fins onto the fish while saying, “Fit F on my fish!”
  • Help the children tape or glue the fins onto the fish.

Write the target letter

  • Have the children trace the uppercase letter F and the lowercase letter f written on the fins of the small fish.
