Alphabetical Ordering Cards and Recording Sheet – Is your class learning to sequence letters of the alphabet? With this game, players draw three cards from the pile and use their sequencing mat to place the cards in alphabetical order. The alphabet sequence at the bottom of the mat can be used as a prompt.

Room Write – Alphabetical Order – My students will never get sick of Room Writing activities. If you are new to the concept, here is what to do… All cards are printed and laminated (optional). Cards are then placed around the room for students to find. Each student is given a recording sheet and walk around the room searching for the cards. When a student finds a card they look at the number on it. This number corresponds to the box in which they need to write their answer. For this room write, students must write in the numbered box the alphabetical order of the letters shown. Includes: Instructions for use, an answer sheet (to make marking easy), black and white printable recording sheet and 16 alphabetical ordering game cards. Once you do one room write with your class you won’t be able to stop! I often have a room write set up in one section of my classroom for one group to do, while another group is reading/writing with me. With the answer sheet these take you less than twenty seconds to mark. It is a great tool for monitoring student progress with a concept in a fun way.
Same Sound Initial Sound Clip Cards – Students select a card and identify the initial sound that corresponds to the main picture shown. Students must then find a picture at the bottom of the card that begins with the same sound. Students show their answer by clipping a peg on that box or alternatively place a counter on top.
Snowman Sounds Initial Sound Matching Game – Snowman Sounds focuses on developing students understanding of initial sounds. Players move pictures to cover the snowman body by matching the initial sound corresponding to the picture with the alphabet letter shown on the hat.

In my own classroom I use these cards in a variety of way. I use a set for introducing a letter and sound as a starting point, have a set on my wall which not only add colour and brightness to the room but allow students permanent access to a sound wall where they are given clues through the pictures for alphabet letters and ‘tricky sounds’.I often use a set when we play games like around the world etc. I also use these cards when we do toy sorts (students place toys onto the cards according to the initial sound – teddybear goes on the Tt card etc.).
