"Santa's Treats" is a fun way to practice quickly recognizing all 26 lowercase letters. Each player takes a turn drawing one of the candy cane cards. If they are able to correctly identify the letter, they earn one point. If they incorrectly identify the card then they must return it to the pile. If they draw a cookie card they get to take cards away from another player. If they draw a Santa card they lose all of their cards!
This is a game that I personally use in my small reading groups and then send home for parents to play with their children. They love it!
