This resource can be used in a few different ways!

Memory Game

Students play this game in pairs. Place the cards facedown in an array. Students take turns flipping over two cards. If the letters match, they get to keep the pair of cards. If the letters do not match, the student places them back facedown and it is Player 2s turn. Play continues until all of the letter matches have been made.

Go Fish

This game is best when played with 2-4 players. Shuffle the cards and give each player 7 cards. Leave the remaining cards in a pile facedown in the middle of the playing area. Player 1 asks a specific player for a letter. If that player has the letter, they must give it to the asking player. If the player does not have the letter, the asking player must draw a card. The player with the most matching letter pairs wins.

Solo Match

This game is played with 1 player. The student lays down all of the uppercase letters (in alphabetical order if they can) faceup. Then, they place all of the matching lowercase letters on top.

Partner Match

This activity can be used to match students for different activities in the classroom. Hand each student a letter card. Then, have them stand up with their letter and find their letter match. The classmate with their match is their partner.

This resource is great to use as a reading center activity or to use with your students in your reading small groups as flashcards.
