These FUN and CLEAR cards are designed to help students develop and understand letter/sound relationships.
In this packet, you will receive 1 black and white Alphabet card, where the pictures are outlined in black and left white inside for the students to color and make their alphabet card their own. You will also receive one colored card, with the full color images that is great for using as an example or enlarging to make a giant teacher copy to review with the class.
The letters A, E, C, G, I, O and U all have two pictures, either to represent the long and the short vowel sound (apron and apple) or the hard and soft consonant sound (cat and circle). I recommend reviewing these words with your kids to ensure they understand the two unique sounds.
In my classroom, we also use these for writing. At the beginning of the school year, the kids color 2 black and white copies, one to take home (for practicing with parents) and one for school. I laminate the school copy and tape it to the back of their writing folder. When they get their writing folder, they pull out their current piece and use the alphabet card as a reference to sound out and spell words. We also begin each writing session by reading the alphabet cards as a class, using our “reading finger” and pointing to the letter “A,” then to the first picture, “apron,” then the sound “ā,” repeating the process for each letter and sound. (To finish A, we read the letter again “A,” then “apple,” then “ă.”
￼It works amazingly for me & I hope it does the same for you!
