I'm always thinking of games to play with my son. I came up with something I call folder games. This is the first game I created. I took a cheap $0.25 folder, cut the inside pockets off. Then printed the letters of the alphabet and pasted them on the folder. Simply print my template, cut it, and paste it inside a folder. This is a cheap, easy, portable, and fun game. My son loves it! Of course he loves anything to do with letters. To download this game, click here.
1. Select a place holder. We usually use a plastic animal but you could use anything, including a cap off a water bottle.
2. Roll the dice and move that many spaces.
3. When you land on a letter, say the letter's name and the sound it makes. This is great phonics practice. If your child doesn't know the letters or sounds, say it and have them repeat what you say.
4. The first person to reach the finish line wins.
