Fast Alphabet

Fast Alphabet

This is a fun activity used as an energizer for the group. Ask the group to find a partner to challenge in an alphabet race. When the facilitator yells “sparkles” (isn’t sparkles much more fun to say than go?), the partners will trace out each letter of the alphabet with their index finger. The first participant to trace the alphabet (A-Z) will win and then move on to play another member of the group.

After a few rounds, feel free to ask the participants to cooperatively spell out the alphabet in unison. It is challenging and creates a paradigm shift within the activity.

This activity is very similar to the one Mark Collard explains in this video:

 

Keep playing until the group wears out their arms (usually a couple of rounds will do).
