I HAVE ... DO YOU HAVE?
Scarecrow ABC Cards
Reasons why I love this set of ABC cards!
FIRST: I changed the “GAME” to: “I have .. Do you have.” WHY? My kids seldom use “who” when writing, but they often use “Do”, “you,” and “have.” I wanted them to READ these words every time we do this activity.
SECOND: In all my ABC products, I place the letters on a pale yellow background to aid with visual discrimination.
THIRD: I use the lowercase letters exclusively. Children need to learn these letters quickly, as they appear in books more often than capitals.
FOURTH: Next to each letter is a picture that corresponds to the letter sound. These illustrations are from my SOUND SORTS PRODUCTS.
LASTLY: All children need variety to stay engaged. On five of the cards, the questions ask: Do you have shirt? Do you have scarecrow? The kids love to get one of these special cards!
There are 33 cards to enable up to 33 kids to play. For the majority of my teaching career, I have ALWAYS had 33 children in my California Public Schools kindergarten room!
Thank you for your comments and encouragement. It is because of YOU that I continue to create materials for young children!
