Potato alphabet game in preschool


It was farm week in this two year old classroom. Laying in the center of this table was a set of mixed up construction paper potatoes with one letter of the alphabet on each one.



There are several centers open throughout the classroom including a sand table, water table, easel, gluing activity, blocks, and so on. The teacher waits to see which children would like to participate in the game with her. I doesn't take long before a handful of twos come to her table to play the game.



Each of the children are given several potatoes and then the teacher ask the children to look and see if they have the letter A.  This group of twos are very familiar with the letters of the alphabet so this is more of a review for them and not an introduction to the letters.



The children search through their potatoes as the teacher asks them to help her find the next letter. Then the children say the names of the letters they have found so far with the teacher. The game continues until all of the letters are found.  Today's game reviews the letters A through J.



After all the letters are found, some of the children want to play the game again so the teacher mixes the potatoes all up and they play again.

These are always a favorite! Kids love this because they get a bit of one on one time and us teachers really do get a chance to listen to kids language. These are really up close and personal activities!
