So many ways to engage your young learners with experiences with the alphabet and sounds.
26 Uppercase Alphabet Cards
26 Lowercase Alphabet Cards:
Can be used to match uppercase letters with lowercase letters, ABC Memory Game, Go Fish, Sound Matching Activity, Letter/Sound Recognition Flashcards, or even a Sequence activity that allow students practice putting ABC cards in order.
6 Chicka Chicka Boom Boom Cards: I use these cards when we play matching games. For example, we play a Go Fish version with the alphabet cards. Each player will start with 5 cards. One player will ask another player if he or she has a letter. If not then they go fish! In the pile of cards that they choose from I mix in the boom boom cards. If they select a boom boom card then they get another turn. (I believe in second chances!)
Boom Boom cards could also be incorporated in a matching game. If a player selects a boom boom card, he or she must place all matches back, and whoever has the most matches at the end of the game wins. Or be a believer in second chances like me and when a child selects a boom boom card, they get a second chance!
26 Alphabet Mats:
Provides young learners the opportunity to identify uppercase letters and analyze the letters as they find the matching lowercase letter and place it on the alphabet mat.
2 Uppercase and 2 lowercase Dab-a-letter or Dab-a Sound Mats:
If you choose to laminate the mats, students can place bingo chips on the letters/sounds that the “caller” calls.
If you choose not to laminate and simply print, your kiddos can use bingo markers to dab the letter/sound.
*TIP: Until my little learners are ready for just the letter name or sound without a visual cue and for my students who need a little extra nurturing, I not only call the letter but then I display them in a pocket chart.
