With the nice weather here, why not take advantage of it and get your kids outside and moving. You can incorporate learning the alphabet in a fun unique way that the kids will look forward to.
Since for this alphabet learning game we are dealing with the english alphabet and it’s letters, we will want to use 26 cards. One card for each letter of the english alphabet.
On each card, write each letter of the alphabet. You can use flashcards that are already printed with the letters if you have them.
Simply, hide each flashcard or card with the letters on them throughout your yard in various locations to get the children searching.
When a letter flashcard is found the children come and find the same letter on a sheet of paper which has all 26 letters printed on it. Have the children find the letter they found, on the paper and scratch it off and continue searching for them rest, until all letters have been found.
It’s that simple. This really gets children to identify and match the letters as they find them, slowly eliminating each letter.
Placing the Alphabet Letters In Order;
You should endeavour to have the children place each letter on the table in the proper order (eg.) A–>Z. This is a great way to make the children learn the order, or think of the order of the alphabet letters.
Rainy Day Activity:
This makes a great ‘rainy day’ alphabet learning activity for your children or the children in your care. You can do the same thing but hide the letters throughout your house or in your basement & have the children look for the letters and complete the same steps as above.
*You could even make teams of two or three children etc. You could time each team as they first try to find all the hidden alphabet letters and then scratch them off the paper and place them in proper order on the table. Of course, there is no losers, but everyone is a winner. This is just another possible way to make it fun for the kids.
Kids can learn the alphabet in a variety of unique ways. You just have to put some thought into different ways to make alphabet learning for kids fun and creative. Learning the alphabet at a young age can help to build a solid foundation for your children, preschoolers & kindergarten children.
Different age ranges of children, whether preschoolers or kindergarten children can be tested in different ways with their learning and understanding of the alphabet and its letters.
Alphabet Learning Game for Preschoolers:
Adjust things according to your children or the children in your care and their understanding of the letters of the alphabet and all it’s letters.
What you Need for this Alphabet Learning Activity:
Blank cards or styrofoam dinner plates – you want these to be sturdy and durable to last for use in other teaching activities.
Thick Black permanent marker for printing letters on each card.
Sticky tack, scotch tape or masking tape
What to do for this Alphabet Game for Kids:
Get 26 different cards – you can buy blank cards or make your own cards from bristol board. Styrofoam disposable dinner plates would work good for this purpose as well.
On each card or plate print a large letter of the alphabet. Make sure that each card or plate has just one Alphabet letter on it. All of the cards or plates when put together should make up the entire alphabet with all 26 letters (english alphabet).
Give each child or preschooler a card and any left overs could just stay in a pile.
Starting with the letter A – Ask the children to look at their letter on their card and whoever has the letter A to bring it up to the front of the class or up to you the teacher.
You will get children who get this wrong. Just have them take their seat and have them keep their letter card until it is there time to bring it up.
When the right letter card is brought upto you have the child present you the letter card, for example letter A & ask them and the rest of the children idf they can think of anything that starts with that letter. Or, to make it educational in a couple of different ways , ask them to think of a type of ‘food’ that starts with that letter. Or ask them to think of a place that starts with that letter. Keep it interesting.
When you come up with a few names that start with that particular letter of the alphabet then you can take the alphabet card or plate and tape it or sticky tack it to the wall in the proper order. Eventually you will have ALL the alphabet letters on the wall for the whole preschool class to see.
