*Choose any 10 letters at a time from the letter manipulatives such as foam letters,magnetic letters,etc. Go though a stack of shuffled letter cards and call out each letter. As the letters are called, they should look to see ifthey have that letter and put it in a basket.

*Put the matching pairs of letters,numbers or sight words laid out on the table or floor. As each card is flipped over, say whatever is flipped over. For letters, they may also say the sounds. If the cards do not match, flip it back over. For cards that do match, keep them where you can see and continue reciting as each of the other cards are being flipped until the game is over.
