Extending this activity

  • -Stomp on a letter, and then think of a word that starts with that letter. For example, if you step on a 'B' you can brainstorm words that begin with B.

    -After reading "Chicka Chicka Boom Boom" by Bill Martin, Jr., try stomping on both uppercase and lowercase letters.

Adjust for an older child

Stomp on a word instead of a letter. You can write words that are in categories like 'names of friends', 'animals', etc.

Adjust for a younger child

Make the letters big enough where you can stomp on the letters together. You can also try writing all of the alphabet on the ground and stomping on the letters as you sing the ABC song.
