This pumpkin themed alphabet center is a great Halloween or fall/autumn themed center for students who are practicing letter sounds or letter recognition. This game is for small group instruction or can be used as a whole class game.
Designed for the pocket chart, Where's the Cat? is a game for centers or whole group instruction where a black cat is hidden behind a pumpkin. A poem is chanted where the student(s) must say the letter they think the cat is behind. Once guessed, the letter is removed. If the cat is behind the pumpkin, then the cat must be hidden again to play further. If the cat is not behind the pumpkin, then the poem is chanted again and a new letter is guessed. This game has letters in both capital and lowercase forms.
These cards can also be used as a matching game, where the capital and lowercase cards can be matched.
