Teaching Tub ideas
Alphabet Order – Ask children to put upper and lower case letters in ABC order. Once they have completed the task, have them sing the ABD song, touching each letter as they say it.
I Spy – Use the miniatures to play a game of I Spy. For each letter that you have introduced, choose and item for the corresponding tub. Set the objects where the child can see them.
What’s Wrong? – Place one or both plastic letters and two or three items from the tub on a table. Add one “wrong” item from another tub. Ask the child to say the letter and name all the objects. Then ask the child which object doesn’t belong.
Matching Game – Dump the contents of the tubs on a table. Have kids match items with lids.
Challenge them with these ideas:
- Sort by ending sound.
- Sort by how many syllables each item has.
- What word rhymes with the item?
- Categorize by items – animals, things you wear, food etc.
PREREADING SKILLS (Pre-K)

Colors - The items and activities in this kit will help your child learn about colors. Included in this kit: Activity sheets (to be picked up by patron from folders), 4 books ( My First Colors, Colors, Lift and Trace Colors, Poke-a-dot colors), an activity kit (pompoms, tweezers, 6 cards), and try at-home ideas.

Included in this kit: Activity sheets (to be picked up by patron from folders), 3 Books (Circle” Sphere, Shapes, Lift and Trace Shapes), shape bingo cards (8) and pieces (12), wooden tiles for matching and plastic eggs in a carton for matching or shapes.
Opposites - Learning opposites is an important skill for pre-reading children to help them distinguish differences around them and aid them in their quest to become successful readers and writers. Understanding the concept of opposites is important as it helps a child to learn how to compare two different things and to develop a more concrete understanding of a specific concept (e.g. hard vs soft). Contains 3 books (Opposites with Frank Lloyd Wright, Oh My Oh My Oh Dinosaurs! : A Book of Opposites, Olivia’s Opposites). Guide sheet/Activity sheet to be picked up from folders.

What is the difference between a blend and a digraph? A blend is two consonants together that each makes a sound. For example, in the word "s to p" the /s/ and the /t/ each make a sound. A blend is different than a digraph, which has two letters but only one sound. In the word "shop" - the /sh/ makes only one sound.
Beginning Blends (First Grade)
New HFW: be. came, down, from, have, help, her, love, next, of, over, says, too, want, who.

What is an ending blend? An ending blend consists of two adjoining consonants at the end of a word that each make their own sound. So, for example, ck would NOT be an ending blend since it makes a single sound: /k/. Rather, it would be an ending digraph – since a digraph consists of two letters that make ONE sound.
Ending Blends (First Grade)
New HFW: give, now, one, saw, some, they.
