Heart Alphabet Game
Playing games is one of the easiest (and most fun) ways to practice a necessary skill. Make any activity fun, and kids will learn on their own.
This alphabet game allows students to practice letter recognition by rolling a dice, identifying the letter landed on, and saying the sound the letter makes.
The game is quick, so it’s easily added to literacy centers. Plus, it’s small, so you can store the pieces away.
Just print, laminate, and store in task card boxes for next year. There are 9 different game boards to choose from. Kids can play with partners, in small groups or during soft start morning routines. They can cycle through the cards to mix things up and work on a variety of letters and letter sounds.

How to Play the Alphabet Game
The gameplay for these task cards is simple! Follow these instructions:

- Players take turns rolling and moving through the game board.
- The first player to land on the final spot wins.
Differentiation for Alphabet Games
Students can just say the letter name, if they are not ready to say the sound. They can work on one card and play several times or use several different cards and play each one once.
Need a little more rigor for your kindergarten students? Offer the game boards, manipulatives, and dice, and let kids use the game as normal, but when they land on a space, have them say the letter sound and name an object that starts with that letter.
For even more difficulty, give students a sheet of paper to record the letters they land on. This helps with letter formation practice.
