I picked up a few plastic popcorn containers earlier this year to use with a popcorn sight word game. I was thinking about the beginning of the year yesterday and decided to make an alphabet game. Print, laminate and cut the piece of popcorn out. You can either put just the uppercase letters in the container, just the lowercase letters or both depending on what skill you are working on. Students pick a letter and say it's name. If they get it correct they get to keep it. If they get it incorrect they put it back. The student with the most letters at the end of the game wins.
