Step 1: Arrange students in groups of 3-5. For each group, provide them with a paper bowl and die-cut letters. The letters should be enough to create 2-3 words.
Step 2: Next, tell students that they are going to create words out of their alphabet soup, just like the boy did. For Pre-K, you can show them the words they need to make.
Step 3: Students should look for how much space they are placing between each letter to make sure that they connect to make a word.
Step 4: After each group makes their word, students can use their bodies to create a movement using the element of space that represents their word. For example, if they have the word “bear”, they may show that with large space that moves from low to high. Just like there can’t be too much or too little space between the letters, there can’t be too much or too little use of space to show the word.
