Pass out the cards to students. Have them sit in a circle. Pick a child to go first. They stand and read their card. (Your students may not be able to read yet, but they quickly catch on to how the game is played and "read" their cards accordingly.) The child with the correct answer stands up and reads their card. Play continues until all cards are read. To make this a REAL challenge, time the students and have them try to break their own record!
Game 1: Say the letter. "I have A. Who has F?"
Game 2: Say the sound. "I have /a/. Who has
/f/? The pictures on the cards will help
students remember the letter sounds.

Thanks for this great freebie, Page and Cristy! Simple and so very nicely done. I can't wait to try it out with my grandkids! By the way, I pinned it on KindergartenKlub last night and it's gotten
168 repins. Woohoo! Hope that it will help bring your "Cruisin'" line lots of sales!

Looks awesome! Can't wait to use it! Great art!
I played it today (May 1) and my kids loved it! We played it twice in a row. I think it will become a favorite!
I should have waited to comment until after we play this game, but I'm too excited. We are always looking for fun ways to teach sometimes disinterested prekindergarteners letter recognition, and I suspect my very social students will love this game! Thank you.
That's been on our to-do list for a while. We got those adorable alphabet over at My Cute Graphics and she doesn't have a lowercase set! Hopefully, we'll get on that soon! Hope you enjoy these for now! :)
Do you have the most current adobe reader? Sometimes there can be problems with that. A few other Mac users have had trouble downloading this. Please check our QandA tab for some suggestions that worked for them!
Here's an excellent link to someone who has had the same problem. Follow this link to her educational journal and she gives GREAT solutions. Please let me know if they work!
This should work great. Plus the info will be helpful in case you run into the same problem on any other packs you try to download from TPT or really anywhere!
If it doesn't work, please let me know and I'll email it to you!
My kiddos love this game! Hope yours enjoy it too!

This is just what I need for my non-readers who are still learning their letters and sounds. It's cute without being overly designed and distracting. Visually appealing without being too "busy" so they concentrate on the letters themselves and not just the design of the card.
These are awesome, I have on suggestion with this game though, instead of having "the end" after n, you could loop it back to the first one and then you can start with any letter and it will always loop the whole way through. Overall, love the colors and size, they are great!!!
No worries! Several Mac users have trouble with blurry lines for words in many PDF's. Here's an excellent link to someone who has had the same problem. Follow this link to her educational journal and she gives GREAT solutions. This is an awesome game, and it will print beautifully for you after getting your printer settings corrected. Hope you enjoy!

My students love this game. I like that the letter "I have" is very large and the one I'm asking for is small. I think that will make the game easier for beginners!
Macs have trouble reading these PDF's sometimes. You'll need to make sure you have the latest adobe reader and be sure to open it (not just preview it). That should do the trick. If you still have trouble, just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll send it to you! :)

I cannot see the font when I download it to print! Is there an easy fix for this?

If you still can't get it to work, please contact the TPT support team! They are awesome and can walk you through the steps.
Please let me know when it works for you!
And if necessary, I can certainly email it out to you! So sorry it's giving you trouble!

Will you ever have this done up in the DeNealian font?
We looked all over one night for a Denealian font that we could use. We didn't have any luck except for high priced purchases. I just found a new seller on TPT with some excellent fonts at reasonable prices. Let me try again! Thanks for reminding us!

Hi! How many students are required to play this? I have a special ed class of only 8 students.
I usually give only 1 card to each student and keep the extras with me and I play those cards. (But I have 22 so that leaves me with just 4 cards!) YOu could play, but you may need to give each student 3 cards...they would REALLY have to pay attention!
