Letter Recognition Games
Letter Sound Recognition Games
This is a game to play with a small group to help children identify letters. It can be used with an intervention teacher and it also be sent home for parents to play with their children. This Ninja Turtle game is a great way to get boys excited about learning letters! Girls love it too!
I pick 5 to 6 letter pairs (capital & lowercase letters) that my children need to learn. I print each of these letter cards 3 times on cardstock and laminate them. Copy the special cards on cardstock and laminate them too.
Children will take turns drawing cards. They will name the letter and keep it. If they can’t name the letter, they are told the letter. They then look at the letter and name it. I let my children keep the letter card the first time we play the game. The 2nd time we play it they discard the card if they can’t name it. We play the game at least 2 times in literacy stations. If they draw a special card, they do as it says. The child with the most cards after all cards are drawn is the winner.
This game can also be played with the children giving the sound of each letter when they draw it.
Shredder! Oh NO! All your cards must GO!
Pizza! Yay! Take a card from all today!
Turtle Power! Take 2!
Place 8 – 10 letter cards in a pocket chart. Hide the Leonardo card behind one of the cards. The children will guess where Leonardo is by naming the letter that they think Leonardo is behind. Children will keep guessing until Leonardo is found.
This game can be played with the children guessing where Leonardo is by giving the letter sound of the letter they think he is behind.
