I’m excited to share with you some of my favorite (and easy!) alphabet activities that I use with m,y kiddos at the beginning of the year.
#1 Leap Frog Letter Factory
I found these cards about 8 years ago when my oldest daughter was young. I am a HUGE fun of the Leap From games and DVDs. These letter cards correspond with the Letter Factory videos.
I was happy to learn that you can still buy these letter cards at Amazon! Just click on the image to go and check them out!
#2 Alphabet Treasure Hunt
We also have a ton of fun with this game from Lakeshore.
#3 Kagan Games
My kids LOVE playing quiz quiz trade and once they learn the basic directions, you can play with all sorts of skills. This game is from the Kindergarten set of ELA games.
Here is a little peek inside of my ABC cupboard – I have two big cupboard spaces filled with ABC games and activities! I always pick up ABC puzzles when I find them…I try to purchase 1 or 2 (or more!) games during the year to add to the selection. The children do not choose from this cabinet! I pull out activities for centers that the children will work from.
I love taking things that I already have and turning them into an activity. It makes for an easy, and CHEAP way to keep the kids engaged. These are my go-to activities when I don’t have a lot of time to prep, or I need something that is pretty simple for the kids to figure out. They’re also great for Daily 5 rotations!
I’ve organized all of these games into a packet for you. There are 20 activities total. They are available as a bundled package or 10 in each set. I hope you like them and that they will make the beginning of the year easier for you!!
I’ll be back soon with more of my favorite ABC activities!
