Halloween Costume Parade "Roll, Say, Keep"!
This is a Halloween or costume themed center or game. This "Roll, Say, Keep!" game is focused on upper and lowercase letters of the alphabet. You can use this game to focus on letters or sounds. There are also printables for identifying every upper and lowercase letter, PLUS printables for distinguishing between upper and lowercase letters.
Common Core Standards:

CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RF.K.3a Demonstrate basic knowledge of one-to-one letter-sound correspondences by pro-ducing the primary sound or many of the most frequent sounds for each consonant.
Students will roll a die, count the dots, and identify the number. Students will find the match-ing number of dots on the “Roll, Say, Keep!” mat. Students will identify the upper or lowercase letter of the alphabet. Students will complete an extension activity to identify a specific up-per or lowercase letter, or to distinguish between upper and lowercase letters.

Print and laminate “Roll, Say, Keep!” mats and alphabet cards for durability. Print as many mats as you need for the students that will play.
This can be done in a center or small group setting.
Students will place the alphabet cards facedown, in a pile, on the table. Students will choose 6 cards and place each one on a square of their “Roll, Say, Keep!” mat.
Students will roll the die and identify the number of dots on the die. They will match it to the same number of dots on their mat.
The student will read the letter or say the letter sound. If they are able to correctly identify the letter or sound, they pick up the card and put it in a pile in front of their board. They “won” this card. If they are not able to identify the letter or sound, they leave it on their board to try again. Students will be encouraged to assist other students, if they are unable to identify the letter. This will ensure that the next time the student will be able to identify the letter or sound.
Students will continue until all the cards are gone. The student with the most alphabet cards wins!
You can choose to work with only upper or lowercase letters, or combine all the letters. You can choose to work on letter recognition or letter sounds.
Students will complete extension activities, after playing the game.
There are two extension activities. In the first, students will distinguish between specific letters. They will color or use bingo markers to identify a specific letter. They will only dot or color the specific letter. There is a worksheet for every upper and lowercase letter of the alphabet, so you can use only what you need.
In the second, students will distinguish between upper and lowercase letters. For example, they will color the uppercase letter “A” orange and the lowercase “a” green, There is a work-sheet for every letter of the alphabet.
I am so pleased to share some different center ideas with you. I am passionate about differentiation and believe that it is so important to make it easier for the classroom teacher to differentiate. I hope that my centers save you some time and provide your students with enjoyment!
