RULES

 

  • This is a timed competition.  The lower the score the better.

 

  • Each player will step on the letters in alphabetical order as quickly as they can. 

 

  • TIP: Usually after about half the class has completed the game, I flip the letters over to the numbers and play the same game.  Players will start to learn the pattern and this is a good way to keep them on their toes.
