The children volunteer 4 or 5 letters of the alphabet. These need to be written where they are easily visible.
The idea is to make a 4 or 5-word sentence – each word beginning with the letters given by the children.
E.g. If the letters “B F A S” were given, a sentence could be “big fish always swim” or “Ben’s favourite arm swings”.
It is a really good five-minute filler. The kids love it, and it can be adapted for different age groups.
Simon Lolley made the following suggestion:
This activity works great – but it’s a good idea just add a “Together” at the end of its name, and you get TOAST! Kids respond better to it, and it’s great hearing them say to other classes, “do you play toast ?”…..you don’t….oh…BORING!”
