Learning the alphabet is an important first step on the road to reading. Our Feed the Puppy Alphabet Game helps kids practice the alphabet in a fun way. After all, who doesn’t love a cute puppy?
Our free “Feed the Puppy” Alphabet Game download includes game box templates, alphabet card templates, instructions for creating your Feed the Puppy game, and tips for turning your game into a great learning experience. Ready to go?
There are many ways to use our Feed the Puppy game to help your child learn the alphabet.
Is your child just learning the names of the letters? Spread out the cards and say the name of a letter. Have your child select the letter card and feed it to the puppy!
Is your child learning the sounds the letters make? Show him a card and have him say the sound the letter makes.
Is your child ready for a new challenge? Use both sets of letter cards and your child can match uppercase and lowercase letters.
And of course, don’t forget to feed the matching sets to the puppy!
Older children can be encouraged to use the letter cards to spell their names or short words.
Keep playing until your child gets tired or the puppy gets full … whichever comes first!
