Objective: Child identifies letter while blindfolded.
Materials: Blindfold and letters that can be individually placed in child's hands.
Procedure: One child (the assistant) places letter in another child's hands that is blindfolded. Blindfolded child guesses letter name by the shape and texture of the letter. Assistant tells child if the answer is correct or incorrect. Teacher models the game before children participate.
Variations: Use a recording sheet to mark the letters off that child has answered correctly. Utilize a variety of letters that have different textures and shapes. Try two letters to make a word or a blend, digraph, or cluster. Give the child a word one at a time. Teach the song to introduce the game.

Alpha-vision, an alphabet game
Try to discover the letter name.
Use your hands to feel the letter
Let your mind and touch think together.
Can you guess the letter name for me
Even though you cannot see?
