Letter S Activities

1. Glued STICKS on the letter S.

2. Formed STICKS into other letters of the alphabet. (See picture.)

2. Painted a picture of the SUN with SOUP (tomato soup, to be exact!)
*Note: 1 can will suffice for approx. 10 students.

3. Collected items and labeled them as SOFT or hard.

4. Cleaned our desks with SOAP (aka SHAVING cream).

5. Compared rocks to STONES.

6. Using alphabet STAMPS, spelled out our names.

7. Had STRAW races (using straws to blow a pom pom down a "race track" on a table).

8. Wrote our letters, numbers, and names in SAND. (I put colored sand in some old pencil boxes.)

9. And on Friday, SLID around the room in our SOCKS, just for the fun of it!


  1. I love the idea of forming letters from sticks. Cute! :)

    1. Thank you! Actually, one of the kids started doing it out on the playground, and I just brought it into the classroom!

  2. How did the painting with soup turn out? Were they able to dry and be displayed or was it a toss-when-they-aren't-looking craft?

    1. Hi! I have a drying rack hanging on the wall over my sink. We let the pictures dry over the weekend, and let the kids take them home on Monday. A couple were still "tacky", but the rest were okay. We made sure to keep emphasizing "you don't need to daub on a whole lot"! LOL!
