Letter & Letter Sound Match in the Pumpkin Patch

Letter & Letter Sound Match in the Pumpkin Patch

Letter Match in the Pumpkin Patch is a fun, hands-on literacy game for practicing and increasing letter identification and letter sounds. Students use their visual discrimination skills to find letters in the pumpkin patch and mark each letter using bingo chips/counters, dry-erase markers, dot painters, or crayons, etc. They can distinguish between uppercase and lowercase letters by using one color to mark the uppercase letters and another color to mark the lowercase letters. Picture cards for each letter of the alphabet are provided for practice with beginning sounds.

Perfect for small group instruction, independent literacy stations, fall party activity/station activity, RTI activity, etc! Fall colors can be used for marking the letters for festive autumn fun! It is the perfect addition to your fall, autumn curriculum and a great hands-on and interactive alphabet center that is sure to have your students excited about letter and sound learning!

Supports Common Core Standards: RF.K.1.D, RF.K.3.A, RF.K.3.B

Directions

These pumpkin patch mats can be prepared and used in a variety of ways. You may laminate them and use dry-erase markers to mark them, use bingo chips/counters to mark the answers, or dot painters to mark the letters.

Cut apart the pumpkin picture cards. Laminate for durability if desired.

Letter recognition can be practiced in two ways:

– Teacher directed – teacher says the name of the letter and the students find all of the uppercase and lowercase letters in the pumpkin patch. You can have the students distinguish between uppercase and lowercase letters by having them mark the uppercase letters with one color and the lowercase letters with another.
– Student directed – you may write the letter on the page and have students find all the matches. You can have the students distinguish between uppercase and lowercase letters by having them mark the uppercase letters with one color and the lowercase letters with another.

Letter sounds can also be practiced in two similar ways:
– Teacher directed – teacher draws a pumpkin picture card and says and shows the picture to the students. Students must mark all of the uppercase and lowercase letters that have the picture’s beginning sound. You can have the students distinguish between uppercase and lowercase letters by having them mark the uppercase letters with one color and the lowercase letters with another.
– Student directed – students can draw their own cards or you can place the appropriate picture card on the corresponding pumpkin patch mat and students must mark all of the uppercase and lowercase letters that have the picture’s beginning sound. You can have the students distinguish between uppercase and lowercase letters by having them mark the uppercase letters with one color and the lowercase letters with another.

A blank pumpkin patch is included so you may program it to fit your students’ needs for additional practice with letters, numbers, colors, shapes, etc.
