Playing the Christmas Find and Cover Alphabet Game
This Christmas alphabet game is super simple to play!
Students will begin by flipping over a letter sounds picture card. Then they will look at the picture and determine which sound is at the beginning of the word illustrated on the card.
Once they know the beginning sound represented on the card, they will then look for the corresponding letter on the Christmas tree.
After they find the letter they will cover it with a button or another manipulative of your choice.
If you would like to differentiate for kids who need more practice with letter identification, you could use letter magnets, letter beads or another alphabet manipulative.
You will put the magnets in a pile or a container and students will take one out and find the corresponding match on the Christmas tree. Then cover the spot with a button. Students can match the letters directly or lowercase to uppercase match.
I hope the kids have a blast with this Christmas alphabet activity!
