Directions for Set 1 & 2:
These games works best during whole group after students have studied all their letters. Each student is given a card to stick into their headbands. They are also given a student answer sheet to record their answers. The students walk around the room, look at the cards on each other's heads, and write the matching lowercase/capital onto their answer document.
Directions for Set 3:
One student is chosen from the class to come to the front of the room. A card is placed onto his/her headband without him/her seeing it. The rest of the class supplies words that begin with the letter until to student guesses the mystery letter.
1) Laminated sentence strips using velcro or paper clips for card attachments.
2) (MY FAVORITE) Purchase a class set of those cheap stretchy thin headbands. Students just slip the cards into them to hold them in place. You could even buy those cheap individual plastic containers from the Dollar Tree to separate them all.
