Alphabet Crowns

Tuesday, 13 October 2020

Kindergarteners LOVE hats!  Hats are a fun way to celebrate learning and we make them any chance we get!  Two of our favorites are the crayon hats as we learn about our colors (you have seen those several times) and our letter hats.

Here are the super cute crayon hats we love!  Click the picture to go to this FREEBIE!

Over the years, I have used several different things for letter hats.  If I find a newer version that I like better I use it.  Currently, I am using these Alphabet Crowns from Teacher's Breathing Space.  They are very inexpensive and the file includes all 26 letters of the alphabet!

As we learn about a letter and the sound it makes, one of our activities is to make this crown!  I love it because the students are actually practicing uppercase and lowercase letter formation, identifying pictures that begin with that sound, and distinguishing the difference in the upper- and lowercase letters.  So, they complete a few quick practice activities, cut them out, glue onto a sentence strip, and I staple it to fit on their head.

The kids look so cute walking around school in their letter crowns!  They often wear them everywhere they go and their parents love to pick them up at the end of the day while they wear them because they make a great conversation piece.  They already know what letter they learned about that day and they can ask their student what sound the letter makes and discuss what else they know about it!

The alphabet crowns include the same activities for each letter, so it becomes a project the students can learn to do completely on their own!  These have even been great to send home during distance learning and the students would wear them to our live sessions!  If you are looking for a way to make learning letters and sounds fun, I definitely recommend these letter crowns.  It gets the students excited, is great practice, and keeps them engaged in learning.
