Memorizing Letters

20 min2 participants

Understanding spatial organization of a page. Read, memorize and locate letters on an alphabetical base plate.

Let's play!

  1. Player 1 : Pick 4 letters from the bowl, place them randomly on the empty base plate and pass it to Player 2.

  2. Player 2 : Read the 4 letters.

  3. Player 2 : Remember as many letters as possible and return the plate to Player 1.

  4. Player 2 : Pick all the letters from the alphabetical base plate that you remembered and move them to the bottom.

  5. Both players : Compare and discuss the letters.

How to prepare

  • 2 base plates

  • 2 identical sets of letter bricks, from “A” to “Z”

  • 1 bowl

Arrange a set of letters in alphabetical order on one of the base plates.

Place the rest of the bricks in the bowl.

Facilitation tips

  • Ask “Compare strategy for remembering and finding the bricks”.

  • Ask them “How can we make this activity easier/harder/for more players?”.

Possible variations

  • Start with fewer alphabet bricks, from “A” to “J”.

  • Change the number of letters to be remembered.

  • Add a timer: more or less time to read / to find the correct letters.

Children will develop these holistic skills

physical skills

  • Discover the “spatial organisation of a page”
  • Organize: find objects in their usual place; return them to their usual place; sort or categorize by placement, function, attribute; gather materials for a task

social skills

  • Cooperate and share: Work together to facilitate individual learning
  • Anticipate potential problems, identify steps for resolution including alternative solutions

cognitive skills

  • Develop tactile exploration: Explore a braille page through touch: search with both hands over a page with a logical tactile strategy – top to bottom and side to side

Did you know?

  • Engaged learners demonstrate motivation and commitment towards their learning, often extending themselves beyond set goals and expectations.

  • Iterative : when children have the opportunity to explore and investigate new concepts, they learn through the process of trial and error.
