The Disappearing Alphabet

Here is a game you can play with your child to help them learn to recognize the alphabet.  Start by printing one copy of the worksheet for each person playing the game.


Version #1:

The version that we played used a 30 sided dice with the letters of the alphabet and 4 'wild' characters (*).  Each person took turns rolling the dice and then checking off the letter that was rolled.  If the player rolls a wild character they may check off whichever letter they would like.  The game ends when one player has checked off all their letters.

To make the game more challenging you could use a dice with upper case letters and the worksheet with lower case letters.

Version #2:

If you don't have access to a 30 sided 'ABC' dice you could use the alphabet stamp templates as cards.  Print the templates and cut the stamps out.  Shuffle them and place the upside down on the table.  Take turns drawing a card and then checking off the appropriate letter on the worksheet.  The player with all the letters checked off first wins.

Version #3:  (Travel Version)

Take a few worksheets with you on a trip and then look for the letters on signs and license plates as you are driving.  The first person to find all the letters wins.  You could make it more challenging by asking each player to look for objects and places that start with each of the letters.  For example, if you see a bridge you check off the letter 'B'.
