This at and ab magnetic letter resource includes:
* Magnetic letter word cards for 27 at and ab words. These magnetic letter cards uses lined font for all words to help students orientate the letters to the correct writing positions. They also have a bean stalk for lower section of line, cloud for middle section of line and castle for upper section of line. This allows the teacher to explain how jack goes up or down the bean stalk, climbs through the cloud or enters the castle, when explaining how letters are formed on the line.

A process of looking at the top word, finding the matching letter and putting it into the correct letter box shape is required. A picture of a cat or crab is placed in the bottom corner of each card. The teacher can talk about how the word cat or crab rhymes with the words being built with the magnetic letters e.g. “You made the word rat and it rhymes with the word cat. See the picture of the cat. That reminds you that these words rhyme.”
*All magnetic word cards come in three versions; black font, black and green font (word part) and red and blue fonts (Montessori). Includes color and black and white versions. You choose which version you want to print.

Bean Spell Unit:
This resource is part of my Bean Spell Unit that helps students learn spelling through loads of multisensory activities, lists of words that share a common letter pattern and comparing two different, but also similar, word families.
The 27 at and ab words covered in this resource use the key words 'cat' and 'crab' as a mnemonic spelling strategy. This spelling strategy is continued throughout all my at and ab spelling resources.
My Bean Spell Unit has 21 activities for the at and ab word families. These are in a bundle for $7.95 in my tpt store.
