Cut & Paste Phonics Hunt

As I was stalking researching early ed blogs, I found a bunch of neat phonics activities.  I liked the idea of finding a bunch of words that started with a certain letter.  I decided a cut and paste activity would be great for fine motor skills, also (not to mention fun for a toddler).  However, most of the activities of that sort I found would have all of the words begin with the appropriate letter.  I wanted Xander to have to analyze each object/word to decide whether or not it began with that letter.  So, being the perfectionist that I am, I made my own activity.

Each letter has a bunch of objects, some of which do not start with the given letter.  There is a grid for cutting guidance.  There is also a page with a big outline letter (that I will print on cardstock).  
We started with letter B.  Since he is not very good at cutting, I cut the objects into strips, rather than having them cut them all out completely.
The B and the leftover objects.

***UPDATE: Great News!  I now have all of the letters done!  If you're going to post about using them, please link back to my blog!

These are the training scissors we used before he moved on to big boy scissors.  He's also partial to glitter glue!

    1. You're welcome! I'm glad you like them! What a great idea to use lowercase also! I'm hoping to have all of the letter completed in the next couple of weeks. When I post them all, I'll post lowercase outlines with them also!

  5. Hello! I am having trouble downloading these. I do not have a google account. Could that be the problem? when I click on the link it goes to a page and shows to be loading but it never moves past that screen.

    1. I just tried to access it from a different browser and it let me see them without being logged in to Google. If you cannot get it to work again you can leave me your email address and I can email it to you.

  6. I'm really enjoying these with my son. I love that you have lowercase letters as well. So many people only include the uppercase and I feel it is so essential to be practicing the sight of both. Thanks for all your hard work designing things for so many of us to use. Dee
