I use these to put a visual to the song on the webpage. When we get really good at the song we start using them independently. The mix of kinesthetic and visual learning helps my students to learn the letters and the sounds they make. We use this almost daily to reinforce the alphabet and the sounds. When we start writing later in the year they make good flip books for students to keep at their table groups. They can also be sent home as part of home reading and weekly reading assignments.
