For letter recognition, I...
host Alphabet Bingo!
go to the dollar store and buy flashcards for my struggling kids and send them home to use with a note.
use cookie sheets and sugar to have them write specific letters in the "snow" (great sensory activity).
use flashcards and when the student gets it right I let them feed the flashcard to "The Muncher" (a monster-like trash can).
(we) sing and dance to Dr. Jean's "Alphardy".
(we) say the ABC chant every day.
use a LeapFrog DVD, "The Letter Factory".
use whiteboards and play, "Simon Says." Simon says write a G.
play Letter ball (a beach ball with letters written on it; kids have to say what letter they touch).
line my kids up by first letters of their name. "If your name starts with A line up."
That's all I can remember for now... The red activities are links to blog posts and more details.
