Alphabet Pairs lets your little one match colourful pictures, and learn the alphabet as they go along. Say the sounds and words out loud and encourage playing together to boost your little one's confidence. There are several ways to play and different ways of learning to suit your little one.
How to play:
For solo or group play. Shuffle all the cards and lay out 10 cards face up. See how many words you can make from the letters you see (for younger children, adult assistance will be required). The game can also be played competitively by a group of players using a clock, watch or egg timer. See who can make the most words in 2 minutes. Each letter card can only be used once in each new word.
Letter sounds and early words
Hold the letter card up and make the sound of the letter e.g. 'a' (as in a-p-p-l-e) - ask your child to repeat it. Point to the picture and ask your child to tell you what it is. If your child gives you the correct answer make the connection by saying 'a' is for 'a-p-p-l-e'. If a word or sound seems too difficult repeat the sound and tell your child what the picture is. Put the card aside and go back to it later.
