A collection of quick ideas to use for teaching about the alphabet. March Around the Alphabet This is a lot of fun. The children gain added exposure to the letters while including the excitement of a stop-and-go game! Write each letter of the alphabet on large index cards.
Be sure to put the capital letter on one side and lowercase on the other. Spread the alphabet out on the floor. Have the children create a circle around the alphabet. Instruct the children to freeze, bend down, and pick up a letter near their toes when the music stops. Now the children hold their letter cards way up high and wait for the teacher to call upon them to tell what letter they have in their hands.
Hartzog Sound Can I send home a pretty decorated tin can The Sound Can each week with a different child as we focus on a new letter of the alphabet.
Inside the lid the directions are taped. Please fill this can with as many items that begin with the enclosed letter and return to school tomorrow! The letter of the week is written on a post-it and attached to the bottom of the can.
This is a really great learning experience for the child and the rest of the class as they guess the items from the Sound Can. I write the names of each item on chart paper, even the incorrect answer. This leads to some good discussions. We count the items and the Sound can is placed in the ABC center for the rest of the week.
Give children copies of magazines and instruct them to cut out pictures of items that begin with the letter T. After children have found enough pictures, have them glue their pictures on their t-shirts.
You can do this with any letter. Just change your t-shirt to something else that starts with the letter you are discussing.
It is a great way to throw in those sight words. It is the class against me. First, I tell the students what I have to do before anybody can shout out the answer.
This makes it a listening game as well. Now, we are ready to begin! I write a lowercase letter and do the things that we decided earlier i. Sometimes I pause a bit to make it harder.
There is some judgement in this, but if anyone gives answer before the routine is complete, the teacher gets the point. If I hear most of the correct responses the students get the point. Because it is a group activity, all the kids feel free to pitch in and try.

How to Play the ABC Game.
This ABC Game is perfect for toddlers because it has no specific task to accomplish. There are twenty six boxes, one for each letter of the alphabet. Inside each box is the upper case letter, the lower case letter and the picture of a word that begins with the letter sound.
Above, we have the names of the three alphabets written with themselves, and the romaji ローマ字 showing how to read them for those who can't read Japanese. Now, let's see the words for the names of all the three alphabets written in each of all the three alphabets.
