These are without pictures. The intention was to have students recognize the letters without a scaffolding tool. They can be laminated. Students can practice tracing letters or creating cvc words. Additionally, they can be used to assess students' letter recognition.
I like to copy the vowels on red construction paper and consonants on blue. This helps the vowels stand out. I also tell them that they make the short vowel sound. I attended 95% Group trainings and started doing this. For long vowel sounds, you can copy the vowels on light green construction paper.
