These cards provide a FUN way to learn letters and sounds!
There are two ways to use these cards. The first way is as the alphabet display in your classroom. Just print on white 8x11” cardstock, cut out on the black lines, laminate, and hang.
The second way to use these cards (and how I use them in my kindergarten classroom), is a bit more interactive!
Print on white 8x11” cardstock, cut out on the black lines and laminate. We learn a new letter/sound/movement combination each week beginning with the letter A and ending with Z. When I introduce a new letter, I show my students the letter card. We say the letter, the item on the card, and the letter sound three times (during which time we act out the card). For example, for the letter A, we say, “A, apple, ah-ah-ah.” During ah-ah-ah, we put our hand to our mouth three times like we are eating an apple. Then we act out all of the cards we have learned so far.
All of the suggested movements are included in the pack. Of course, you could use a different movement for any letter if you choose! For the letter X, I have included a card for “six” and a card for “x-ray,” since I know some teachers (like myself) like to use the ending sound for x instead of a beginning sound.
