I am always looking for educational games that the kids will like.
Okay, what do kids love? Music- check. Running around- check.
I have done this game before by putting tape on the carpet but decided to take a lot of work out of the equation and used letters we already have.
The girls have a couple different versions of this game we play.
1. Play music while the girls run jump around the circle from letter to letter. When I pause the music they have to stop as fast as they can on a letter. Let’s stay that Aleah lands on B. I first ask her what sound the letter B makes and then ask her to tell me a word that starts with the letter B. Soph still needs quite a bit of help with this game but Aleah is always willing to help out =)
2. Mix up all the letters in a pile and they need to sort out the letters out in their proper order, A- B-C….
3. Take the letters and place them on things around the room that start with that same letter, put the letter W by the Window.
I think there are a few other random varieties of this game but you get the general idea of it. Letters, fun, learning etc.
