|Team work - placing the letters and|
deciding which letters are needed.
Dumb post name, but I don't have a cute name or alliteration for this game of matching uppercase to lowercase letters - in order. First we played the game with teams. I threw 4 sets of the uppercase alphabet written on foam squares onto the rug. The kids and I both love when I toss things on the floor. Four teams had a strip with the lower case alphabet on it. Each team could have one person run to the floor and grab one square. Then another person could go - relay style. If they already had the letter they had to take it back. I had a few "wild cards" too. It didn't take long for some strategy - like only get letters that are needed. The first team with a complete uppercase alphabet won. It was close and everyone finished. Later we use the same game as a station with four students drawing letters from a basket for their own alphabet. They need to NAME the letter also. We know all the sounds and so are going back and introducing the letter names.
