AlphaPet (alphabet) Bingo, in English & Spanish! Perfect for small groups, centers, and parent volunteer days, this packet contains multiple levels of alphabet awareness practice, in a choice of English or Spanish.*
This game is designed to target two kindergarten Common Core goals, and is also useful for end of year or summer PreK practice.
Differentiation within CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RF.K.1.D (recognize & name all letters):
• Level One: students identify/match/name a target letter from a field of 6. (10 unique cards; 5 in upper & 5 lower case)
• Level Two: students identify/match/name a target letter from a field of 9. (10 unique cards; 5 in upper & 5 lower case)
• Teacher or parent volunteer draws the target letter card and presents it to the group. Or, a student may draw the card and state its letter to the group.
• The person drawing the target letter card may present it to the group visually or verbally or both. I.e., he/she may show the target letter and say, “Do you have this letter on your card?” (with or without naming the letter for the students), or he/she may simply state the letter without showing it to the students.
• As appropriate, alternate between requiring students to match a capital with a capital or a capital with its lower case. (All calling cards are in capital. Five Bingo cards at each level are in lower case; five at each level are in upper case. Twenty cards in each language!)
To target CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RF.K.3.A (letter-sound correspondence):
• The card-drawer may state the sound of the target letter and students determine if the corresponding letter is on their card.
* Note re: Spanish Lotería While there is some variation regarding which letters are taught as part of the Spanish alphabet, I have included the three non-English letters that are most commonly included in Dual Language programs in my area; i.e., ch, ll, and ñ. I am not aware of a school that is currently including rr, thus neither have I.
