Letter I Activities

Instructor: Christopher Muscato

Chris has a master's degree in history and teaches at the University of Northern Colorado.

The letter I can be difficult for students, consider the many sounds it can make. These activities will help your early to middle elementary students build/develop literacy skills by focusing on this letter.

Letter I Activities

Whether students are developing literacy skills for the first time or are trying to build a larger vocabulary, it can always be helpful to explore the alphabet one letter at a time. These activities are focused on teaching to recognize the uses and sounds associated with the letter I in the English language. While these activities are intended for early-mid elementary school students, they are also designed to be easily adaptable for slightly younger or older students.

Color The Letters

Provide students with a set of worksheets. On each sheet, there should be a sentence written in bubble or block letters. Students will attempt to find all of the I's in these sentences, and color them in. They will use one color for the upper case I's, and a different color for the lower case ones. When students have colored in the letters, you can ask them to draw a picture on that page, based on the associated sentence.

  • Materials: Worksheets, coloring materials (colored pencils, crayons, markers, etc.)

I Book

Give each student five blank pieces of paper. With these, students are going to make a very simple book about the letter I. Depending on the literacy skills of your class, it may be beneficial to provide them with a list of I words before beginning this activity.
