5 ABC Games using Paper Circles


 Here are 5 easy ABC Games you can play with your kids.

First, you'll need to make a set of ABC circles:
  • Trace circles on construction paper using a small cup (mine are about 2 1/2" big)
  • Cut them out
  • Write all the Letters on the circles. (I made a set of Upper-case Letters, and a set of Lower-case Letters.)
Once you've made the letters, you can then use them in 5 different Games!

these are super adorable. I'm using my bottle cap lids I made at the beginning of the year to go with Confessions of a Homeschooler's ( http://www.confessionsofahomeschooler.com/blog/2010/08/letter-for-apple-2.html ) letter matching activities. My boys are really going to like the car!

These ideas are fabulous and can all be adapted for the age/ability of the children. I am definitely having a monster in my classroom next year! Thanks!
I am going to do this! Since I got a laminator for my bday I'm going to laminate the letters so they last longer. Thanks for the ideas- Michael will love them!
