Print these alphabet cards out on card stock and laminate for greater durability. You can put them up in your classroom as your alphabet chart or use them as cards to help students learn sounds. There are cards for all the long and short vowels and consonants including hard and soft c and g. The 8 1/2 by 11 inch cards are much more manageable than the poster sized vowel and consonant charts, making them the perfect choice for displaying during mini lessons or during small group reading instruction. I laminated the cards in one long strip to mount above my board. I laminated another set as individual cards to use for instruction, and bound a set of cards into an alphabet book for use in my classroom library. Students loved reading it!
