All About the Letter
All About the Letter Activity Chart is part of my circle time routine. Each letter of the alphabet has four photo picture cards. Suggested ideas:
• Letter recognition
• Alphabetic order
• Beginning sound identification
The picture is a representation of the All About the Letter Chart. The photo cards are Alphabet Soup Sorters the school district had purchased for the classroom. Instead of using the Alphabet Soup Sorter Cards you can use the photo picture cards in this activity packet.
The packet contains the following:
• (26) Letter Cards (Vowels are in red)
• (4) Photo cards for each letter of the alphabet
• (1) All about the letter... Sign
• (1) Question mark card.
Aa: apple, ambulance, ant, Apple Jacks
Bb: balloon, butterfly, bear, button
Cc: cat, cake, cookie, car
Dd: doughnut, domino, dog, duck
Ee: elephant, eraser, eagle, ear
Ff: fork, football, firefighter, feather
Gg: goat, gas, grapes, glasses
Hh: heart, hat, hamster, horn
Ii: ice cream, ice, iron, insect
Jj: jacks, jet, juice, jar
Kk: kick, keys, ketchup, kite
Ll: ladder, lamp, lock, lemon
Mm: mushroom, magnet, motorcycle, milk
Nn: nurse, newspaper, nest, nickel
Oo: ostrich, orange, olive, owl
Pp: pig, pumpkin, pot, pizza
Qq: quilt, quarter, queen, quail
Rr: rabbit, rake, rope, rhino
Ss: socks, snake, soap, stove
Tt: turtle, tomato, table, teeth
Uu: unicycle, umbrella, underwear, uniform
Vv: violin, vase, vulture, van
Ww: watch, wagon, watermelon, window
Xx: x-ray, xylophone, box, fox
Yy: yarn, yak, yogurt, yellow
Zz: zebra, zucchini, zigzag, zipper
It is suggested to print all pieces on card stock and laminate for durability. Actual size for each letter card is 3.25” x 3.75” and each photo card is 2.625” x 2.6667”.
Once printed cut on the solid black line for the letter cards. This way the background goes all the way to the edge.
Once all pieces have been laminated and cut I used a calendar pocket chart to place all of the cards in and the photo cards are placed behind the letter.
