Practice identifying letter sounds by working your way through each letter of the alphabet.
Exercise Students’ Brains (and Fingers) with our Interactive Alphabet Game
Make learning the ABCs as easy as 1-2-3…
…or as easy as drag and drop!
This alphabet sorting activity engages Kindergarten-Grade 1 readers when practicing letter-sound identification.
To play, students work their way through each letter of the alphabet, clicking and dragging items that begin with each letter sound.
Students will show they understand one-to-one letter-sound correspondences through this activity while simultaneously working on dexterity and computer skills!
Scaffolding + Extension Tips
A team of dedicated, experienced educators created this resource to support your phonological awareness lessons.
In addition to individual student work time, use this CVC word-building game to enhance learning through guided reading groups, whole class lessons, or remote learning assignments.
For groups with a mixture of above and below-level learners and ELL/ESL students, we have a few suggestions for keeping readers on track:
🆘 Support Struggling Students
For students needing fewer choices to sort from, delete an image or two from each slide before assigning.
Embed pre-recorded words into each slide and prompt students to listen to the beginning sounds for each.
➕ Challenge Fast Finishers
Encourage students to identify the letter sound for each word not sorted onto the letter slide.
🧑🏫 Class Activity
Project the slides onto a screen and work through them as a class using choral response, or have students come up to move the words into the boxes.
