Photographic Manual Alphabet Cards are a unique way to add inclusion and multi-modal teaching of the English alphabet to your classroom. A realistic picture, rather than an abstract illustration, aids greater comprehension and ability to imitate each symbol. As a speech therapist working with preschool, kindergarten and first grade students, I created these cards (using my hands) to incorporate a multisensory approach to teaching the letters of the alphabet. My children love using them and I’m sure your children will love using them too.
They are presented in a high resolution, individual card format that can be printed, cut out, laminated and used in a reading center, activity station, or as a slide show.
I have also used them with great success with my ELL and ESL students as a supplementary way to teach the English alphabet. Tactile/kinesthetic learning aids retention.
You can also use them to introduce a unit on hearing disabilities. They make a wonderfully colorful, high impact bulletin board. Post your students names on a bulletin board spelled out with individual cards and watch them have fun figuring out who’s who. Then watch them fingerspell their names to each other!
