Children have several options on how to play this game. I use it in a small group setting, but you can adjust it as needed! After preparing the materials for the game, children can pick a lower or upper case letter card to match to the game board (which can also be upper or lower case). This give you the option of matching capital to capital letters, lower to capital, lower to lower or capital to lower. Once the letter/animal card is matched have the child identify (or identify for them) the jungle animal that you might be learning about and clap the syllables in it's name (as a group or individually). Have children take turns filling up this simple game board until all the animals have been identified!
This game helps with:
*Letter recognition (both capital and lowercase)
*Jungle animal recognition
*Initial letter sounds
*Identifying syllable in a word
I hope this game will be fun and helpful to you and your little ones!
