Hangman

I’m willing to bet every English teacher has their own personal favorite alphabet song. This one is mine. I’ve heard it a thousand times and I’m prepared to hear it a thousand more. It took me about that long to understand what Elmo says at the end.

Hangman is a great way to reinforce the names of the letters, which bare little resemblance to their sounds. Thanks English!

For those who don’t know how to play: This is a 2 player game. One person picks a word. They then write a dash for each letter in the word, indicating how many letters are in the word.  The other player then guesses letters from the alphabet that might be in the hidden word. If he guesses a letter that is in the word, it is written in its place.  If the guessed letter isn’t in the word, you draw another body part of a hanging man in the gallows.  What a Game!
