In this fun alphabet activity, your students will have to listen to the clues you read them and deduce the answer. They will build vocabulary and critical thinking skills.
This is one of the first activities I created for Expanding Minds Learning. I started doing this game with my son on the way to school. I keep his school calendar posted on the wall near the door so I can see what they will be doing each week. I check what the letter of the week is on our way out the door.
Near the beginning of the school year, in the car on the way to school, I would ask him, “what are some things that start with the letter A” (or whatever that week’s letter was). After a few weeks, this game became too easy for him. I started asking him in different ways. For example, “what is a fruit that you eat that’s red that starts with the letter A?”
He LOVED this game! It became our daily commute game. I found that I was impressed with some of the vocabulary he was picking up too. We started adding in terms like “opposite” and “rhymes with”.
Over the school year, I came up with this list of clues to give him. I hope you and your students find this activity as fun as we did.
