Mix it up and teach students the musical alphabet with real pictures of instruments from around the world! On each poster real images of instruments accompany each letter.

There are multiple instruments per letter so that you can choose your favorite or highlight several (ex for T you get tuba, trumpet, timpani, taiko, etc.). Each instruments poster comes in full color, black and white, half-size color, and half-size black and white. The black and white options are "ink friendly."

I teach in a building of English Language Learners and I wanted to add something fun and musical to my classroom that would support their work on literacy. So, I created this set which features real pictures of instruments for each letter of the alphabet. The posters will reinforce the letters of the alphabet and also provides a true image of the instrument itself which will help to develop my students' schema.

I printed and posted these above my white board but I think they could be easily used as flash cards as well. I've included a variety of options so that this resource can work for you!

This set includes:

82 posters of different instruments in color

82 posters of different instruments in black/white - printer friendly

82 color posters in "half-size"

82 black/white posters in "half-size"

Colorful banner letters that spell out "Instrument Alphabet!"
