This file contains a page for each letter of the alphabet, all laid out in one inch squares.
The students use one inch square tiles to fill in the shape and measure the area of the figure. Students use square tiles to create a composite shape.
My school has an Ellison press for one inch squares and I can cut out paper squares for the students to glue onto the sheet, otherwise I put these into plastic sleeves and let the children write on them with dry erase markers.
These can be used in a variety of ways: For counting and cardinality in Kindergarten and First Grade, while learning letters and letter sounds. Students can make words with the letters and then count all of the tiles that have been used. They can compare the number of tiles used per letter (Which has more, less, equal). These can be easily adapted into both Literature and Math Stations or Centers. Third Grade students can focus more on using the shapes to find the area.
