Kindergarten Cat And Dog Alphabet Game
These fun printables are easy to use! We suggested you print them on cardstock and laminate them for fun over and over again!
One way to play is to do a simple matching game. This a a great game for 2-4 kids. Choose a table captain. Read about table captains.
The table captain will lay the CAT-LOWERCASE cards face down on the center of the table and deal out the DOG-UPPERCASE cards face up evenly to his table mates.
The captain will then choose a card from the center of the table and check his hand to see if he has a match, if he does he puts his/her match together and draws another card. If he/she does not have the match he/she will hold up the cat card and another child with the matching card may take it. It then becomes that child’s turn and they pick a card from the center of the table.
The game continues until a child matches all her dog cards (uppercase) with cat cards (lowercase).
Flash Cards These Cat and Dog Cards are great for using as flashcards to practice letters and letter sounds. Hold up a card and ask the letter and the letter sound.
Letter Matching Game To play this game you will choose a certain set of letters, such as A-E and their lowercase counter parts. Shuffle the cards and spread them out on the table or floor and set a timer for a reasonable amount of time (for five letters I did about 1 minute for my kindergartner). Once the timer starts, the child will race around and match as many letters as possible.
Name Spelling For this activity, get out both upper and lower case letters and spread them out. Have the child find the letters that are in their name and put them in the correct order.
Sight words The adult can use the lowercase letters to put together some sight words and ask the child to sound it out. Kids will love using these cards to work on sight words.
