How to Use the Printable Alphabet Cards

These alphabet cards have many so many uses. They are meant to be printed on full 8.5 x 11 paper. I recommend printing on cardstock for durability.
The consonants have green borders and the vowels have blue borders. There are also pictures to represent the beginning sounds. Long & short for vowels and soft & hard for c and j.
Once you have everything printed, you are ready to put them to use.
- Hang In the Room: Hang in ABC order at child height in your room. Children can move and point to each letter naming the letter and picture(s) along with saying the letter sound(s.)
- ABC Puzzle: Mix the letters together and have students create a long train to put them back in order. Singing the alphabet song is helpful while working.
- Letter Sorts: Have students sort the letters into groups. One group could contain letters that have curves, one that has lines, etc.
- Vocabulary Builder: Pick two cards and talk about how the pictures are similar or not.
- Who Has Game: Give each child a letter to hold. Then give clues about a letter. The child holding the correct letter gets to stand up to show everyone in the class.
- Sorting Mats: The sheets can also be used as sorting mats. Lay a few out and have children find objects around the room to place on the correct letter sheets. This makes a great whole group or small group activity.
