Make learning about letters FUN for your little learners! I Spy Letters is an engaging book with simple text. Students find various letters of the alphabet on each page. I love listening to the students conversations when they read this book. I hear students using positional words to talk about where the letter is on the page, they discuss the sounds the letters make and describe what the letters look like.

After reading this book to the class, I put out Letter Sensory Bottles next to my basket of I Spy books in the library center. Also, I have also set out Letter Hunt pages. Students find the letters in the sensory bottle and trace the letters on their pages. Go grab this Letter Hunt freebie HERE.
You can use supplies you have on hand to make letter sensory bottles. Be creative and have fun! Just be sure to hot glue and/or tape the bottle cap on.
For the bottle on the left, I used plastic letters I found at Michaels in the scrapbook section. First, I added the letters and a PINCH of glitter to the bottle. I filled the bottle 3/4 full with clear corn syrup and filled the rest with HOT water. Shake, shake, shake! The bottle may look funny right after you make it. After about a day when the materials settle, it will look amazing!
For the bottle in the middle, I used large letter beads, colorful pom poms and sequins.
For the bottle on the right, I used plastic letters and colored rice. This one is super simple!
