Are you looking for a fun way for your preschoolers to work on learning the ABC’s? They are sure to love this Apple Alphabet Game! Play games are always a fun way for kids to learn!
Apple Alphabet Game:
By playing games, your kids can work on many different learning concepts such as sight words, CVC words, letter recognition, and much more! Playing with others gives kids the chance to develop important skills like communicating with one another, taking turns, and working together.
What Is Letter Recognition?
Letter recognition is the ability to recognize and name all of the lowercase and capital letters. Children who can recognize the letters of the alphabet can distinguish between them too. Playing games like this one is a fun way for pre-readers to practice identifying letters.
Getting Ready To Play The Apple Alphabet Game:
- Apple Game Board
- 26 Lowercase Letter Apple Cards
- 26 Capital Letter Apple Cards
What Else Is Needed:
- White Card Stock or Copy Paper
- Laminator and Laminating Pouches
- Paper Cutter or Scissors
- Game Pieces
To get this letter recognition activity ready for your kids, click on the button below. Then, download and print the game board and cards. I like to print my resources on white card stock, because it is more durable. But, you can use copy paper too.
Then, laminate the game pieces and cut the cards apart. For game pieces, you can use apple shaped mini erasers, pom poms, unifix cubes, or any other small manipulative.
How To Play The Apple Alphabet Game:
To begin playing this alphabet game, the first player will pick a card and identify the letter on it. If he or she says the name correctly, he or she will roll a die and move that number of spaces on the apple game board.
Then, it is the next player’s turn. Play will continue until one player reaches the finish. That player is the game winner!
If your kids are just learning the ABC’s, you can start with just the lowercase or capital letter cards. As their letter knowledge increases, you can use both sets of cards together to differentiate the activity.
This Apple Alphabet Game is an engaging way for kids to practice identifying lowercase and capital letters. Playing games with others is always a fun way to learn!
