Every spring I like to pick up bubbles from the dollar store to take to school for some end of year celebrations. Blowing bubbles outside in the nice weather is a blast! This year, we took some bubble themed fun into the classroom as well with this bubble alphabet match activity.
Bubble Alphabet Match
To get this matching game ready for a small group, I printed out the pieces and laminated them so that I can reuse them next year as well.
You can leave the bubbles in squares, but I decided to take the little bit of extra time and cut them out in circles – I thought they looked more “bubble-like” that way!
Since this was a review game for my small group, we played with all the letters at once. I would not recommend this for early kindergarten or younger students, but rather I would pick a smaller group of focus letters at a time.
Since my group was ready to review them all, we first began by laying the bubbles out on the table in alphabetical order from a-z.
Then, we stacked the wands in a pile in the middle and took turns pulling a card.
After pulling a card, we identified the uppercase letter name and sound, and then searched for its matching bubble. For more of a challenge, you could have the bubbles mixed up and not in order. That way they really have to hunt!
Once they were paired up, the player can keep their match, or you could have a basket where the pairs go as you finish them.
We played until all of the bubbles had found their wand!
