F is for Fall

This is an excellent activity for beginning spellers. Place a cut out of a large F at each table. Talk to your kids for a few minutes about words that start with F, beginning with the word fall. Then have them go through magazines and/or newspapers to find words beginning with F. You may want to have them look for pictures of things beginning with F too. They should cut these out and paste them on the large F you have provided.
