Playing the classic memory game is a great way to teach your emerging readers the letters of the alphabet. In the game presented here, upper and lower-case letters are printed separately. Pairs of pupils play together and try and remember where the matching letter is lying, face-down on the game board of a letter they pick up. Not only is this a good game to build memory and concentration skills, it's also a good way to reinforce the pairing of the upper and lower-case letters.
