My Mitten Matching Game is perfect for practicing identifying letters and matching lowercase and uppercase letters. This game can be played in two ways: Matching or Go Fish. It is perfect for small groups, partner work, individual practice, RTI, and special education settings.
Matching: 1-4 Players. Shuffle the cards and place them face down in rows. You can use all letters, or have students play with just a portion of the deck. For my youngest students, I usually only have them use 10 letters (20 cards) at a time, so that the game does not become too overwhelming. Players take turns choosing two cards to see if they match. If they make a match, they keep the cards. If not, they flip them back and it is the next player's turn.
Go Fish: 2-5 players. Deal 5 cards to each player and place the rest of the cards face down in a pile in the center. Players take turns asking each other for certain letters. For example: "I have capital 'A,' do you have little 'a'?" If a player does not have the letter, then they respond with "Go fish!" and the first player takes a card from the center pile.
