How to play
- Grab two Do-a-Dot markers or counters in two different colors. Another option is to grab two different colored markers.
- Take turns naming a letter. When you name a letter correctly, dot, cover, or color it.
- The first to get four in a row, wins!
I would recommend this game for kids who know most of their letters but need a bit of review.
And if you want to play the game as it’s designed, your child will need to have a little understanding of strategy.
It also helps if she can count to four. 😉
Thanks to the letter of the week we did when he was three, my Five doesn’t need practice recognizing his letters.
But he has a little sister.
I’ve been doing Letter of the Week with my just-turned-Three, so she had fun doing these pages with me. But we didn’t worry about getting four in a row. She can’t count groups of objects larger than three, and she’s not ready for any kind of strategy.
Not a problem! We still had fun taking turns naming and dotting the letters. In fact, we named every letter on the board. Yay for extra practice!
