PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Just grab a highlighter and go!

This activity can be used for many purposes! Use it for small group instruction, RTI, morning work, homework, etc!

There are 2 activity mats for each letter:

-Students cover the focus letter (pictured in the left-hand corner of each mat) throughout the grid. If you don’t have clear, plastic chips, slip the activity mat into a plastic sleeve and let students use dry-erase markers to highlight the letters.

-This activity sheet can be used as a follow-up to the activity mat or can be used independently. Students use a highlighter to find the focus letter throughout the grid. Then, they practice writing the focus letter in upper- and lower-case.

I printed these out and slipped 2 pages back-to-back in a clear protector sheet. My students write on them with dry-erase markers and now they LOVE practicing letter formation! Thanks so much!

Hi Abby,
Thank you for the wonderful resource. I am planning to use it as morning work. I just wanted to let you and everyone else know that the printing problem is with page 21. You can print all the other pages as long as pg. 21 is not in the print range selected. I too am using a Mac, opened it with Adobe Reader, downloaded it with both Safari and Firefox, and still could not get page 21 to print. I will contact TpT as well to inform them of my issue.
Thank you again,

I am also having a difficult time printing this and was wondering if you could send it to me. This is such a great resource.
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  October 24, 2012Babbling Abby answered:
The most common cause of this error is mistakenly opening and printing from "preview" in Adobe. Here's what typically works for most customers:

This is easy to fix, so no worries! If you are a Mac user, you need Adobe Acrobat Reader X. If doing that doesn't work, try these options: - If you're a Mac user, switch browsers (i.e. if you're currently opening in Firefox, try opening in Internet Explorer or Safari) - Make sure you check Adobe under "open with" to verify that that Adobe is the program you're using to open the document and not "preview" - Try opening the document from an entirely different computer (open directly from TpT) Please let me know if any of these option help and, if they don't, you'll have to contact TpT for a refund (sellers don't handle anything money-related). Let me know if there's anything else I can do on my end to make this right! Thanks again for your purchase and have a great day!

I'm so sorry, Beth, I have no idea what the issue is :( It prints fine from my home and school computers! Email me if you'd like babblingabby(at)gmail(dot)com

I am a Title 1 teacher for K-3 grade. Are you thinking of creating a phonological awareness unit. I have some first who still can't rhyme, clap syllables or segment sounds.

Looking for some creative materials. I love the RTI letters and Sounds unit!

I love this Abby! I have a really really low 2nd grader who recongnizes maybe 1/2 the alphabet (on a good day). The one thing that is making me hesitate to use it though is the use the 'a's' that look like as I just typed. I hope this makes sense. I love all the fancy fonts but I would prefer it if the lower case 'a's' were as we teach it in printing. All the other letters look great.
Just my suggestion! :)

Since this the focus of this activity is letter identification, I thought it was important for students to be able to recognize As in various fonts, including those that look like 'a' since so many texts the students read include this type of 'a' :)

Hi Abby!
I love this and can't wait to use it. I am having a problem printing it though. It is saying: "this document can not be printed" when I try. Is there a security feature on it, or do you think it has something to do with my Adobe?
Any help would be appreciated!

Hmmmm, no security feature! Have you tried to print it on a different printer/network? Just as a precaution, make sure you're not trying to print from "preview" in Adobe. Keep me posted!
