"Letter-Sound Hopscotch".

Not too long ago I was perusing some engaging activities that can help in the early stages of phonemic awareness and phonics, and I found this activity:

Hopscotch, as many of you know it, is a classic game that has ancient origins. The true origin of hopscotch is very hard to decipher, although this link, which I also do not claim as my own, details the origins of the game:

This game is without a doubt exercise oriented, yet this game can also be modified to be very educational. Other than using the game to emphasize letter-sound relationships, hopscotch can also be modified to practice math and other subjects.

If you are curious and would like to see some research driven proof, view this article.

This is also not my own work.
