Easy quick alphabet warm up practice. This is a great warm up for students before guided reading groups or skill groups or partner work. I also love sending it home to parents since it is an easy way for parents to practice letter identification at home…. And I have seen great results doing this!!
The alphabet is broken up into 5 letters at a time, giving students smaller goals to accomplish. I have found this especially effective for students who know some letters but have some gaps, since it is broken down for them into groups of 5 letters. Students follow the path, identifying the letter names. I then have them flip the paper over and they then do letter sounds. Once they have mastered one set of letters, you can move them on to the next set.
I have the student use a little object (usually a math manipulative) and move it on the board identifying the letter as they move from place to place. The letter name sheet has a mix of uppercase and lowercase letters. The letter sound side has only lowercase letters.
If students are having trouble with just one letter, I sometimes will work with them and have them put markers on that one letter on the board.
At the end of the packet, there is a game board with all letters on it as well as an editable form so you can customize it for your students. For example, if a students is just practicing a and m, you can make their sheet for only those two letters.
