Getting Ready

This free alphabet matching game is easy to prepare.

I printed off the activity, ran everything through my laminator and cut out the ice cream sundaes.

I grabbed a few Ziploc bags to store the game, so it would be all set for next time. (You could also use a small container to store the pieces in as well.)

Viola! We were set!

To start I mixed a few of the lowercase “ice cream scoops” and the “bowls” together and laid them out on the table.

Since we were still working on identifying letters, I wanted to start with only a few, so the game wasn’t overwhelming.

Then we carefully matched the lowercase letters to the uppercase letters to make “bowls of ice cream.”

Extension: For variation, or if your child is interested in more of a challenge, you could see how many she can match in one minute, and then see if she can beat her record next time.

Once she could quickly match all the letters in front of her, I slowly started to add more ice cream letters and bowls, until all 26 letters were on the table.

It was a sweet literacy center that the kids begged to play again and again.
