I am busy planning and prepping for this coming year. I really want to be organized this school year, so I need to start NOW! I don’t know about you, but I feel like the summer is just slipping away.
I just made a printable called ABC Tic-Tac-Toe that helps with handwriting, upper and lowercase letter identification and a bit of phonics. I LOVE this printable because BOTH of my girls can use it AND it meets Common Core Standards! Learning with games…how much better can it get?
For students who are first learning the upper and lowercase letters of then alphabet, they can use the alphabet letter tiles to play a traditional game of Tic-Tac-Toe. One person uses the uppercase letter and one person uses the lowercase letter. This is a great way to reinforce letters of the alphabet along with phonics sounds. This picture also shows Option 2.
For students who need extra practice writing their letters, Tic-Tac-Toe ABC’s is perfect and FUN! I am So glad I made this printable because Audrey LOVES it! She wanted to keep playing:) She really worked on getting her letters just perfect. She also worked at beating me:)

Love it! Those H's do look awesome!!
I use Tic Tac Toe for letters, sounds, sight words, and spelling words. When using two players or teams, I just have them use two different colors when writing!
What can we do to make the summer slow down??
