*Newly Updated* More challenging puzzle strips add for the students who are more proficient with their Alphabet letter sequence.**
The Alphabet Puzzle Strips Activity is a fun, multisensory way to practice letter order.
First, student will write the missing letter in the empty circle in each group of vertical letters at the bottom half of each page.
Next, cut on the dotted lines to make strips. Shuffle the strips so they are in a different order. Now, it’s puzzle time!
The pictures on each page of the Alphabet Puzzle Strips Activity are random and doesn’t have anything to do with sounds or letters for this set of puzzles. The Word Building Puzzle Strips Activity does have corresponding pics for each word the student is building.
The purpose of the picture in this set, is to provide a focus-check for the student to make sure they put the puzzle together successfully. The main focus for putting the puzzle together is placing the strips in ABC order according to the missing letter they wrote on each strip.
A Couple of suggestions:
Print out and laminate the color pages. Cut apart strips and store on a metal ring. Students can use a dry-erase marker to write missing letters, then mix up and put puzzle strips together. These can be kept in a Literacy Center on a hook or in a basket.
(2) Print out and use the B&W pages for immediate use in a Literacy Center or whole group activity. Students write the missing letter, cut strips, mix up, then put the puzzle together – gluing the strips in the correct order onto a larger piece of paper or in a center/word work notebook. Then they can color the picture.
