How to Play

Decide how you want the student to sort the letters. There are tons of possibilities depending on what you are working on.  I have listed some ideas below.

Place the letters you plan to use the the side of the game board.

Explain to the student what how they will be sorting the letters. For example, in the following example, the student will sort capital letters and lower case letters.

The student chooses on “coin” and decides if it fits the sort. If it DOES, she slides it down the rainbow into the pot of gold. If it does NOT fit the sort, the coin is set aside.
