Have you read the book Click, Clack, Ho! Ho! Ho!  It is adorable.  Doreen Cronin has hit it out of the ballpark once again.  Her "Click, Clack" books are hilarious AND wonderful for sequencing practice.

Ho, Ho Ho... A Fun Alphabet and Number Recognition Game


My daughter's class of preschoolers just LOVED my "Flap, Flap, Gobble, Gobble Game.  Actually, they enjoyed it so much that they begged to play it all the time.  (We are so sneaky with our number and letter recognition practice).   She asked if I could make her something similar for the month of December.

Ho, Ho, Ho was my response!  This is a highly engaging way for your little ones to practice their alphabet and number recognition.  It provides ton of holiday fun with a silly Santa twist.



The packet contains the following:
* Capital letter cards
* Lower case letter cards
* Numbers 1- 25
* Santa cards
* Directions
