Letter Slap Alphabet Game
Summary

Activity:


Letter Slap Alphabet Game

Best for Ages:


+4

Materials:


Printable 

Summary:


Letter Slap is a game that supports letter recognition skills. To play, you first identify a set of 3 to 5 “target letters” for your child to identify during the game. In the example below, the target letters were the five vowels. We were playing the “easy” version of the game.

In the easy version, the cards with the target letters have a different color than the cards with the non-target letters. In the advanced version, the cards with the target letters are the same color as the cards with the non-target letters. The game can be played with lowercase or uppercase letter cards.

Letter Sounds Listening Game

Best for Ages:


+3

Materials:


Printable

Summary:


This exciting letter sounds game is great for preschool and kindergarten. Before learning to read, kids must first understand that each letter has an individual sound. This can be a very challenging skill because some letter sounds such as /b/ and /d/ are very similar. Mastery really requires lots of practice. There’s no better way to practice than with an exciting interactive activity.

Super Hero Swat Game

Best for Ages:


+3

Materials:


Printable


Summary:


A perennial favorite among preschoolers was a game we called Swat. I would use it as a letter learning game or as a game to learn vocabulary terms. Basically I would tape pictures of vocabulary terms or letters to the board. Then I would have two students line up with (never used on flies) fly swatters and when I called out a letter or vocabulary word they would race to be the first person to swat the correct answer with their fly swatter.

Another variation I would do with this would be to tape up the words and play a version of Simon. I use the swatter to touch a picture or letter and say it’s name. I would have them repeat the name. I would then touch and say the same name again but add on a second one. They would repeat. We would continue adding one item to the pattern with each turn as long as they could keep up with me and my pattern.

Summary:


I love combining any kind of learning with physical activity. Two birds. One stone. So we’re going to learn some letters while burning off some of that infinite energy (I mean seriously, if we could harness the energy of just 2 toddlers…). So because 1) letters are boring and 2) races are fun, I decided to put them together and see what would happen!
