"Spooky Eyeball" Letter Hunt

I love making little letter or word hunts out of plastic containers.  I use paint cups from Lakeshore to fill with holiday goodies, and then add in letters, numbers, or sight words, and you have a great manipulative for the kids!  Here you can see the items I used to make the word hunt:
googly eyes
eye ball felt stickers
blocks with letters on them
clear plastic container


I put the eyes and blocks into the plastic jar for the students to shake and see the letters through the plastic.


Their job was to shake the container, read a letter, and write the letter on the paper.


I have the students seated in table groups.  Each student took a turn shaking the container, reading a word to their group, and everyone wrote the letter on the paper.  I used upper and lower case letters, so the students had so specify what type of letter it was to their group.




This activity took about 15 minutes before the students started to get off task.  This will be something that I incorporate during center time, now that it is introduced to the class!
