It's no secret that physical activity can have a positive effect on learning outcomes, not to mention the fact that it keeps kids and teachers interested. To that end, this is a series of 26 movement cards, one for each letter of the alphabet, tying together physical activity with a language activity. Each card features a single letter of the alphabet in upper and lower case, as well as a physical activity that has a connection to that letter. For example, the instructions for the letter "A" say "Pretend to fly like an airplane!"
Just print the cards on heavy card stock and laminate. Shuffle the cards and allow your students to draw one. Ask your student to identify the letter and the sound that letter produces, then ask if they can guess the word that relates to that letter based on the graphic. Then just shake, rattle, and roll!
I first constructed these cards to get my daughter moving in a fun way, but I think I'll be using them at school with my kiddos too! I hope you enjoy these cards. Please let me know how you use them!
