Phonics + Exercise = Phonercise! {A FREEBIE}

Alphabet phonics activity for Kindergarten with actions
We are having a great time combining letter names, letter sounds, and exercise!
Practicing letter recognition and sounds with movement- FREE chart download!
I made this chart for my class to follow along as we PHONERCISE:
Practicing letter recognition and sounds with movement- FREE chart download!
'Phonercise' is a chant on Dr. Jean's CD Sing To Learn
Practicing letter recognition and sounds with movement- FREE chart download!
Students say the letter's name as they raise their hands in the air
Practicing letter recognition and sounds with movement- FREE chart download!
then touch their shoulders as they say the letter's sound
Practicing letter recognition and sounds with movement- FREE chart download!
then touch the floor as they say the word that begins with that letter
Practicing letter recognition and sounds with movement- FREE chart download!
Eg.'A' (name), a (sound), alligator
'B' (name), b (sound), ball
etc.
{As it is a chant, the CD really isn't necessary to do the activity}
I made the chart so that students could follow along and so that they know what word to say as they touch the floor.

Find the chart for FREE {here}
What a fun way to exercise both the mind and body at the same time.
Let's Phonercise!

  2. I have many of Dr. Jean's CD's also, and LOVE them. We like doing this song/activity, but I never can remember the words myself. Where can I get these great pictures?

  7. I see you are physically involving the children in the learning process (total physical response). That is what I do, and children learn faster, retain more, stress is reduced, and drop out rates later in life decrease by 90% using this method.
