ABOUT THIS INTERACTIVE  

Overview

 

 

Learning to recognize letters is integral to early literacy. But how can you keep your students practicing until they are fluent? The ABC Match game meets this challenge by offering students the chance to match initial letters with pictures while also using their memory skills to remember which cards are where. Students work their way through three increasingly difficult levels, each with more pairs of cards. The game offers two modes of play, one timed and one not, as well as the option to hear the names of all the pictures. A print version of the cards enables students to play the game offline, either in the classroom or at home.

For additional ideas on how to use this game outside the classroom, see ABC Match in the Parent & Afterschool Resources section.
