Here are a few games I use in my kingergarten class!

A. SWAT! Write a variety of letters of numbers on the board.
Using flyswatters, the children tap the sounds or letters dictated.

B. PAINT with WATER on blackboard. Name a sound, letter, or
number and they paint it. May have teams.

C. MATCHING game on board. Use letters, numbers, etc...and
they match. A b
b C
C A

D. FILL IN the alphabet letters. A__CDE__GHIJK__MNOP__R__T...

E. NAMING- Children name the letters in each row for practice.

F. ANIMAL FARM- Divide class into two teams. Give an animal
name, such as: duck, zebra, giraffe, lion, muskrat, beaver....
and they write the beginning sound!

G. CIRCLE GAME- Teacher writes many numbers or letters on
the board. The children circle the dictated ones.

H. ERASE- Same as the circle game, but they erase the letter called.

I. POINTER GAME- Teacher points to a shape, letter, etc and
the child tells what it is. May have two teams.

J. SENTENCE- Teacher writes a sentence on the board and the
children take turns pointing out specific letters.

K. CONSONANT OR VOWEL? After a sentence is written on the
board, the teacher calls students to circle all the consonants
or all the vowels he/she sees in that sentence. Erase and
write a new sentence.

L. NUMBER or ALPHABET BINGO

M. BELL GAME- Pass a number, alphabet, shape card etc around
a circle. When the teacher rings the bell, whoever has the
card must tell what he/she sees.

N. DICE GAME- Class sits in a circle and each child gets a turn
to roll the dice. If it's a letter, they name three things that
begin with that letter, and if it's a number, they must do
an easy activity that many times. Teacher decides activity.
from side to side, walking around the tables, lifting your
tongue up and down, clapping, stomping, etc!

O. As a class, make ALPHABET WEBS on the board. Choose a
letter and they think of all the words that begin with it.
When done, you have a large word web!

P. STAND UP! This game is fun and can be used with any
concept. "IF you have red on, stand up!" "IF you have
5 letters in your name, stand up!" "IF you have 2 sisters,
stand up!" "IF you like painting, stand up!" "IF your b-day
is in April, stand up!".....

Q. NUMBER FUN! Have the children divide themselves up into
two teams. The teachers calls a number and the two players
must print that number on the board, and draw that many
items (they choose).
