Learning games that focus on the alphabet are perfect to use all year long. This fishbowl alphabet game is so easy to differentiate for your learners being introduced to the alphabet or those with more alphabet knowledge.
Learning the Alphabet
This simple and fun game helps learners make connection between the capital and lowercase letters. When we are learning our alphabet, having a game that explores all of the letters of the alphabet is ideal. Focusing on one or a few letters at a time is great for instruction, but it is essential to expose learners to all the letters.
Alphabet Game Differentiation
When your learners are on different stages of alphabet knowledge there is a need to create a variety of ways one game can be used. While matching the capital and lowercase letters is a simple way to play this alphabet game, adding different rules can change up the standards for other learners.
One game we use is “What Comes Next?”. After matching the letters (or a group of letters), place two letters together and have your learners find the letter that comes next. It is perfect to teach or reinforce alphabetic order after reviewing the letter names.
This game can also be played by adding paper clips to the fish cards and tying a magnet on a dowel rod with string or purchase this fishing pole. Learners love being able to “fish” for the lowercase letters and the extra practice he will get with those tricky letters of the alphabet is perfect.
