These simple flashcards are a perfect addition to my "Learning About Animals Through the Alphabet" Unit. In this unit your child/class will be learning about a new animal each day as they learn about a new letter each day. Please check it out! These flashcards will compliment that set perfectly and are also great on their own. Simply print them out and go, or you can color them or have your child/class color them. Then, cut along the solid lines and fold along the dotted lines. Hold up the letter and teach the child/class to recite the letter and sound eg: "A says a as in alligator" and then unfold to reveal the alligator. Once you have gone through it with them, you can then hold it up and have them say it without your help. Alternately, you can hold up the animal and have them recite what letter it starts (or ends in the case of n and x) with. Children love the "peek-a-boo" aspect of getting to see for themselves if they were correct or not when the folded side is revealed! I try to be frugal and therefore I create most of my items to be very low ink use. I have created several items to compliment my animal unit because I believe children learn best when the same "characters" are used across the board and therefore the child feels a connection to them and is more excited to learn! I will be adding more items often so please follow our store, keep checking back with us and you can even follow us on Facebook for updates at https://www.facebook.com/GrowingSONflowers/ Thank you for choosing this product and please keep checking back for more!
