Your kiddos will love to show off their letter and letter sound recognition with this exciting card game! Students take turns pulling a card from the alligator's mouth (a cute container of some sort you create to look like an alligator - I like the plastic dishwasher detergent pods with the flip top lid, but you can make anything work!). If they identify the letter (or sound depending on the skill you are working on) correctly, they keep the card. If they pull an Oh SNAP! card, they must give all of their cards back to the alligator.
The game can also be played with a container. Just have students take turns drawing from a pile of cards.
I will be uploading a CVC word and sight word edition soon!!
*UPDATED 9/15/14* I underlined certain letters to help students from getting them confused if they are turned upside down. (i.e. b, d, p, u, n, etc.)
