Alphabet Practice

Kindergarteners know how important it is to learn what their letters look like and the sounds they make. So, we thought we should practice our early reading skills in the lab too. Since we are Techie Kids, we thought we’d try to use technology to support our learning and have some fun along the way.

When our 2nd graders heard about what the Kindergarteners were doing, they wanted to help. They spent their first time using a digital camera in class to go on a scavenger hunt to look for all the letters in the alphabet. It’s important to be able to recognize letters in uppercase, lowercase, and many different font styles.

The last website was shared by Richard Byrne and we are so glad since it fits perfectly with what we’ve been working on. You can also download free flash cards, coloring pages, and a poster featuring the Alphabetimals.

  1. Hey it’s just like Sesame Street! You did very well getting the letters to line up with the bodies and a lot of bodies too!
    That must have taken you a fair bit of time. The children loved it and I’m sure they’ll be back for more!

    • Dear Mr. E,

      I always liked the alphabet practice that Sesame Street gives. 🙂 We’ve reposted the video in the “uncropped” style per your suggestion, thanks! It is definitely rough, but represents many weeks of practice and filming with the Kindergarteners. They are only with me for 25 minutes, one time each week. The video made its debut on Thursday and it was very well received by the stars of the film!

    • Dear Jacqui,

      Thanks for visiting our blog! It’s so nice of you to leave us a comment. Thank you for the Bembo’s Zoo suggestion. We will definitely have to take a peek. Our Kindergarteners are always excited to see new websites.

  2. Dear Mrs.Moore,
    What a huge piece of work and how creative! I love your kindergarten alphabet video!
    I am hoping to get some video equipment for the next scchool year and start working with green screen technology. Have you ever worked with that before?
    What program did you use for this video?

    • Dear Mrs. Hembree,

      Thank you so much for the encouraging comment! We were very excited to share our hard work with others. It took a long time for us to record the video because we only see each other once each week for only 25 minutes.

      We have not worked with the green screens yet, but it seems very interesting. It’s always a matter of finding the time. 🙂 This video was created using iMovie. It was the first time I have worked with that program. At school, I teach the students about Windows Movie Maker.

  3. Dear Mrs. Moore’s Kindergardeners,
    Good Job! You did an awesome job making all of those letters! What a creative idea! It looks like a lot of fun too! Was it hard to make the letters? Did you guys have fun doing it? I know I had fun watching it! Keep up the good letter learning!

    • Dear Payton,

      We had so much fun making this video! This was a great way to practice what our letters look like and how they sound. There were some very tricky letters to form, but we did our best! Thank you for being so encouraging!
