Scrambling the letters of my nameZ man is using our letter cards to help him learn how to spell his name. He is also all boy. This is a fun game that we created to let him jump and learn at the same time! We play several different learning games with our Letter Cards, many of them are featured in our Activity-A-Day calendar. All you need is cardstock and a marker. The bigger the better! To help the cards not slide, we glued a small strip of drawer liner to the back of them. This means that the kids can jump onto the cards and they won’t slide away. Do you have carpet? Let me know if you have a solution that works on carpet. .

Games we play with our letter cards:Jumping on name letters

  • Scramble and Unscramble. You give your child the letters they need to create the word and they have to put them into the correct order.
  • Hopscotch. Make a hopscotch pattern with the letters and ask your child to jump/hop up to a certain letter.
  • Jumping. Tell your child a word and they have to jump to the letters in the order that the word would be spelled.
  • Word Hunt. Put a collection of letters on the floor and your child has to create as many words as they can from the cards they see.
. Do you play any “physical” learning games?   How do you encourage your boys to learn?   Tell me about it in the comments.

  2. This is a great idea, and putting shelf liner on the back is such a nice no-slip solution! For carpet, putting felt on the back would probably work nicely.

    Thanks for linking up!

  3. Hi. This was such a clever idea. I do something similar with math cards for our older Grands when I am attempting to help them with homework.

    I wanted to tell you the way the Alphabe-Thursday meme works is that you link a post having to do specifically with the letter of the week. In this case, it would be the letter “I”. The only other requirement is that you put a link back to the meme on your post so that people can continue through the meme easily and visit 10 other links.

    I appreciate seeing you here. If I can help you with any of these items, just let me know, OK?

  4. When I was raising my kids and now playing with my grand kids, we sing and play little learning activities all the time. What great ideas you give on your blog. Thanks.
