Pop for Letters is a game that will have your children and students learning about, practicing and mastering the common sounds of the alphabet letters, as well as upper and lower case recognition – all whole having fun.


Place the popcorn box in the middle of the table, pull out a popcorn shaped card. Choose a popcorn card from the box, then say a word that would dtart with that letter sound eg b bat.  If your word(s) word is correct you get to keep the card.  If not it goes back into the un-popped popcorn pile.

Be careful though.  Watch out for the “POP” cards.  If you take a POP card from the box you must put all your cards back in the box.  That POP card then is taken out of play.

Once the box of popcorn is empty, count up your popcorn cards, the person who has the most wins!

This game is a great way to introduce children to beginning sounds of words.  The focus is on the initial phoneme.  Because the cards are in lower or upper case, it is also a good way to learn the alphabet names in both representations.

The popcorn shaped storage box and the high quality popcorn shaped cards make this one of our staples in our Starfish tutoring centre.


There are a number of different other ways to play the game listed on the back of the box.

We also sell “Pop for Blends Game” for help with blends.
