These alphabet cards include real mouth pictures that support young students in becoming aware of articulation (how the sound is formed with the mouth). This awareness helps anchor each phoneme (sound) into memory and also helps students distinguish between letters that look alike or sound similar.

Students can better relate their mouths with the real photos when learning to produce the speech sounds. The cards also use real photographs for the keyword pictures which make them more meaningful and able to be connected to the real world.

The alphabet cards move from speech to print by first showing the mouth picture to help with articulation and how to say the sound. The keyword picture is next which helps remind students of the sound. Lastly, the print (the uppercase and lowercase letters) is shown which helps students connect the speech sound to how it is represented in print.

There are 2 cards for each vowel (long vowel card and short vowel card).

I also included 2 options for the letters – a regular print and a letter formation print. The letter formation option shows students how to correctly form the letter which can be helpful to young students.

They are perfect supplemental materials for your sound wall, especially when teaching young students both the uppercase and lowercase forms of the letters.

The cards can also be used in centers or during small groups. Students can rainbow trace the letters, form the letters with play dough, use small cars to follow the letter formation arrows, sort the cards, find the correct cards after hearing a sound, etc.

Please note: The letters “a” and “g” have 2 options from which to choose, one with a “printed” form of the letter and one without. Since these letters can look quite different in printed materials (books), I included the “printed” form of each letter on one version of the card so students can be introduced to them. This was something I learned during a training and thought it was a wonderful idea! Choose which option works best for your students. See the preview file for examples.
