Recognizing the letters and sounds in the alphabet is a lot easier if you make a game out of it, especially if the game includes some physical activity. On today’s post I am going to share with you a really fun and easy alphabet activity that will help your child recognize their letters and sounds with some movement.

Getting Started:

Begin this alphabet activity by making a letter chart for your student. You will make the chart by writing all 26 letters of the alphabet in lowercase letters. Eventually you can play the game with uppercase letters too, but we don’t want to confuse your kiddos too much just yet. 

You can design or make your own letter chart, or download and print out this one:

Put the letter chart on a clipboard and give your child the clipboard and a sheet of stickers.

How to Play:

 

Explain to your child that their task is to hunt around and find 26 different letters from the alphabet.  

They are only allowed to use one letter per item. So for example, if they pick up a book, they can only pick out 1 letter out of that book. Or if they pick a poster board, they can only use 1 letter from that poster board.

The letter chart that you made is there to help them keep track of what letters they have already found and what letters they still need to find.  

Have your child place a sticker under each letter when they find it. The goal is to find every letter in the alphabet.

Decide on where you want to go to do this alphabet activity. Some ideas include:

  • In the classroom hunt
  • In the home hunt
  • Around the neighborhood walk hunt
  • A grocery store alphabet hunt
  • In the library alphabet hunt

The possibilities are really quite endless, especially when the game involves letter recognition and chart stickers!  Watch our favorite teacher Miss Renee demonstrate how you can use the Letter Hunt Game on this video:

You can also have your child hunt for the sounds of the letters. That could be another game for another day!
