Alphabet matching games are a fun way for our emergent readers to improve or review letter and sound recognition! As a reading interventionist, I was looking for a way to quickly complement my virtual and in-person instruction in letter recognition and letter sounds. These letter and sound matching activities really helped. Bonus, these two holiday-themed games are free!
The big bundle containing these activities has PDF and Digital Matching Games for all the letters!
Ideas for Using the Digital Games
I made a copy of my digital game before each lesson so I wouldn’t mess it up. I then shared the game on my screen with my virtual students. They would tell me what square to move, and I would delete them. If they had a match, I would award that student a point. If not, I would to the next student. Students had to tell me what square to move by describing the graphic in complete sentences. For this freebie, they could say, “Move the snowman with the red scarf.”
With in person small groups, I projected the digital games and had students come up and tell me which squares to move. They had to use complete sentences to describe the picture. These games are excellent working memory exercises!
Ideas for Using the PDF Games
After working with Kindergarteners and first graders for the first time as a reading interventionist, I realized I only had a short time to get concepts across to students. I needed some quick, manipulative activities to engage my little learners as they tried to master their letters and sounds. I made these printable PDF games to use in my classroom groups.
I cut and laminated the squares so students could match the upper and lowercase letters and the corresponding pictures. I drew different colored shapes on the back. Now, I play the game together with a small group of two students, or I give each child their own set. This way, they can take the set home. I hope this product proves as much of a help for you as it was for me! Happy teaching!
