ABC Fun! Christmas in July

I wanted to share with you some of my favorite ABC activities that I do with the kiddos.  In the beginning of the year we eat, breathe, and sleep the alphabet!  My goal is to have all children secure with their letters and sounds by Thanksgiving.  Of course, not all make it, but I will sure as heck try!


We play lots of whole group games.  I like to use a lot of the games from Katie & Company, different websites and videos, and of course old fashioned fun! I’ve compiled a few of my faves in this unit:

ABC Come Learn With Me! 8 Fun Games for the Alphabet


This is an old Making Learning Fun game that I updated!


You can download this one for free in my store!

Crocodile Snap! {An ABC Game}

We also play some partner games! This game of bubble pop is an ALL TIME favorite!  I’m working on making this game in other skills too.  They just can’t get enough!

Bubble Pop! A Fast Paced Card Game (Letters & Sounds)


And of course, we have centers.  Lots and lots of centers! The kids love playing these games, and I love putting them together because they are SO simple to prep!  You just need a few basics that most people have in their classrooms or can easily find/borrow from colleagues!!!


I have these available in a few options

ABC Centers For The Frugal Teacher {Letter ID} - SET 1 ABC Centers For The Frugal Teacher {Letter ID} - SET 2

Each of these have 10 different centers in them.  Or you can get the bundled set for a discount.

ABC Centers For The Frugal Teacher {Letter ID} - COMBO PAC

This is a super fun game for partners called ABC Splat!  You just need upper and lower case dice. You can also find this in my store.

ABC Splat!


Of course, I also have the basics for independent work!
