Place any two cards side by side and search for the matching letter.
It's simple repetition without drill.
Fifty-seven hexagon shape cards for identifying upper and lower case letters. Potential use with Letter and sound ID, ordering, sequencing, differentiating by discrimination between upper and lower case letters.
Watch students' eyes dart between cards finding the one letter that repeats. While each card has eight letters, only one letter will be found between two cards.
Amazingly Complex!!! There is only one match between any two cards. Challenging flashcards because students must discriminate between like shaped letters. Each card combination is different so that practicing stays fresh.
Cards lend themselves to ordering by size since letters are similar but not congruent (the same size). Each repeating letter a different size. Student could sort through the cards, pulling out cards with one specific letter, then order the select cards by size.
Activity can be played individually, pairs, small groups, or stand alone bulletin board.
Letters that look the same when reversed or flipped are positioned along the edges. Upper and lower case letters that are identical such as w, c, or s are in different fonts and colors.
Letters included: All upper case and lower case letters
Bonus punctuation: Ellipsis, question mark
Bonus fruit: Apple Banana Cantaloupe
