Rollerball Letter Sounds Activity

A slight variation to bowling, perhaps requiring slightly more skill – but still so much for for children to learn their letter sounds!

For this activity you will need: card, plastic/rubber/sponge ball.

Three ‘goals’ should be made by bending pieces of card. (Alternatively, you may wish to use any items that can be used instead, or simply mark two spots as being each post.) Each goal should be marked as a different letter sound.

The teacher then reads out a simple word. The child should attempt to sound out this word and work out which letter sound it begins or ends with. If they can identify it, they must bowl the ball through the correct goal to score a point.

If the child chooses the wrong goal, or shoots when the word doesn’t contain any of the letter sounds represented by the goals, they will instead lose a point.
