Kindergarten students begin reading instruction with letter naming and recognition activities. Teachers usually have the class recite the alphabet every day and may also use flash cards to review with the whole group.
To add some variety to this routine, teachers can help students improve their letter-naming skills with fun classroom games. Mrs. Alphabet.com is an educator's resource website with ideas, printable sheets, and interactive games that teach the alphabet.
Musical Alphabet Chairs is one suggested whole group activity. It is just like the traditional game, except that the teacher tapes letters to the back of the chairs. When the music stops, the teacher calls out a letter. If a child is sitting in the chair with that letter, they leave the game.
