Sequence Fun From A to Z

P1050862

Players sound out the letter on their cards, match it to the beginning sound of a picture on the gameboard, then place a chip there. Each card features a letter of the alphabet in upper and lower case. Colored squares on the cards and gameboard help with faster recognition. When you have 4 of your chips in a row, you’ve got a Sequence! Kids will have fun playing the great game of Sequence while learning the letters of the alphabet. Dot your ‘i’s’ and cross your ‘t’s’…it’s the Sequence way to learn your ABC’s!

Sequence Letters is for players ages 4 through 7. In this game, only 4 in a row is needed to make a sequence and win! A terrific way to introduce the letters of the alphabet and to begin corresponding letters with words. There are two pictures on the board that start with the same letter; both the cards and pictures are color coded to help with matching. There is also an alphabet guide that lists each letter of the alphabet with the two possible game board pictures. Example: A is for apple and airplane, B is for balloon and bike. (This is helpful, otherwise you could have many possible selections such as playing the f card on the apple picture and calling it “fruit”. )

This is a wonderful game for early learning and there are many ways of expanding the play. Older players can concentrate on spelling by writing the word picture out on paper on their turn. The game can also be used as an inspiration for an art project by having the players draw, color, or paint some of the pictures they played. And after the game, the pictures played can make for some great story prompts for creative writing.

The game includes the folding game board, playing cards, playing chips and instructions. The complete directions can be viewed on the Jax website.
