This is a great beginning of the year game that will be sure to become a favorite and can be played all year long for a review. Forget flashcards that leave kids bored and get them motivated to learn. I’ve seen huge success in my classroom. My struggling students get so excited to play and excelling faster than ever!
You can add the whole alphabet or print the letters you are targeting or reviewing and then add more as the year progresses.
You will get:
26 lower case letters
26 upper case letters
26 upper and lower case letters on a single card
Game label with directions to print and store with the game
How do you play?
Give each student a card one at a time. You can ask for the letter name, sound, or both. If they know the card they get to add it to their pile! The student with the most cards at the end wins. But wait! If you get the card that says "Oh uh. Someone raked your leaves!" you have to turn in all your leaves. This is a great way to incorporate skill and an element or randomness to help keep the game more fair when working with students at different levels.
