We saved more pebbles from our rock demo activity to make the letter R craft that will go in our alphabet books. Since our books are getting quite thick I tried to use the smallest pebbles we could find in our collection.
Assembling the craft was very easy. The kids coated a paper R with glue and then sprinkled small pebbles all over it. They spent time making sure they placed their pebbles in “just the right spot.”
And now our R is for Rocks page is ready to be added to our books. The contrasting textures of our pages offer a real sensory treat as the kids go through and review their letters throughout the week.
You can find more activities and ideas for teaching kids about rocks on my Pinterest boards.
