Winner Wednesday: Alphabet Cards

Winner Wednesday Header

Wow – summer is just flying by!  I can’t believe it’s already July and I’m linking up with Jennifer from A Dab of Glue Will Do and Sara from Sara J Creations for another Winner Wednesday!

This month I’m sharing a product that was a lifesaver for my less independent kiddos at the beginning of the school year!  These letter formation cards are perfect for kiddos to put in their browsing boxes when they’re not quite to the point that they have a lot to read independently, plus they’re easy to personalize for each student’s known letters AND they can help you progress monitor!


When I set these up for my students I put only the letters the students knows easily on a ring.  Then I put the unknown letters in a baggie with their name on it and keep it with my guided reading supplies so I can quickly and easily add letters to the ring as the students learn them.  My kiddos keep the rings in their browsing boxes and bring them to reading group each day so we can start group with individual letter practice.

Here’s how I teach my students to use the cards.

point say trace

  1. Point to the letter and say the letter name (or sound).
  2. Put your finger on the character and trace the letter.
  3. Say the letter name (or sound) again.

It ends up being a super easy way for students to get letter recognition and formation practice and lets me keep track of what letters the students know each day or week!

I created these themes for specific students in my class, but I’d love to add some more options!  What other characters would your class love to see?
