10 min1 participant

Let's play!

  1. Track the lines on the base plate with your index fingers.

  2. Read the letters.

  3. Pick and place the correct bricks from the bowl to complete the alphabet.

How to prepare

  • 1 base plate

  • 26 letter bricks, from “A” to “Z”

  • 1 bowl

Arrange the bricks in alphabetical order on the base plate, leaving an empty space between each letter.

Remove 1 or more bricks and place them in the bowl.

Facilitation tips

  • Ask “How can you be sure you completed the alphabet correctly?”.

  • Ask “What was your strategy for identifying the missing letters?”.

Possible variations

  • Change the number of missing letters.

  • Add extra bricks to the bowl.

  • Place letters incorrectly on the base plate.
