BRIEF OUTLINE: Students take turns trying to find matching alphabet letters.

 

MATERIALS NEEDED:

  • Alphabet: Uppercase / Lowercase

 

DETAILED EXPLANATION:

  1. Depending on class size, form groups of 4-6 students.
  2. Give each group two complete sets of alphabet cards. Have them place the cards facedown on a desk.
  3. Students take turns turning over two cards trying to find identical cards. When they turn over a card, they must say the letter out loud. If they find a match, that student has another turn. However, if the two cards do not match, the cards are once again turned facedown and it becomes the next student's turn.

 

VARIATIONS:

  • Try using one uppercase (omoji) and lowercase (komoji) set of cards and have the students match upper/lowercase letters.
  • Big/Small Writing: submitted by: 
    Roger Parker
    1. After reviewing the alphabet, sing the ABC song, or pass a big and small ball around the class and have the students to say the alphabet in order. The student who has the big ball must say "big" before the letter; the student with the small ball says "small".
    2. Give a print alphabet tracing sheet to each student and have them say and trace the letters, for example "Big A, small A, big B, small B, etc."
    3. The teacher says an alphabet letter, proceeded by "big" or "small", and students say and touch the correct letter on their paper.
    4. Randomly write various pairs of letters on the chalkboard. That is to say, don't write a "Big-A" next to a "Small-A". Select a starting point in the class, roll the die and count to that student. For example, let's say you roll a four. From the pre-arranged starting point, ask the 4th student, "Please erase the big A." Keep repeating the process until all the alphabets on the board are erased.
    5. Materials needed: Alphabet tracing sheets: HandwritingForKids and a die.
