Letter Wall Cards - Upper & Lowercase Letters and Numbers

Now, while these are called wall cards, I have used them for ever so many things.

Children who are becoming aware of letter sounds, or later with letter names, love to play the game where I have a pile and they have a pile.  I will hold up a letter and if they know the sound/name they tell me.  If they tell me the sound/name, I will then give that letter to the child.  What they cannot remember I will put into my pile.  When the game is finished I will give them a chance to get more letters in their pile by another go round of the game.  Sometimes children are finished after one time through and sometimes they want to play until they have ALL off the letters in their pile.  I also use this game for the numbers.

Some days I have several of these letters or numbers taped to the wall, or hiding somewhere in the room.  While sitting at the rug, I will send off children to find a letter sound/name or a number and bring it back to me.  The fun part is when the all the letters or numbers have been brought to me I will send them back out to hide them again until later.  I begin with only one type of card, such as only lowercase, and build up to using all three at one time for this game.

These are great for a sandpaper letter matching game, or for building a VERY LONG alphabet.  It really does take up a lot of space.  If a child chooses to build the very long alphabet, I will invite the child step back and look when their work is finished so they can appreciate how very long it is.

    1. Thanks for seeing that mistake. When I made it, I must have missed the page with the D and the Y. It is fixed now.

    1. Thanks so much for you kind words. You will be glad to know that I AM working on booklets and other things for pink, blue and green reading. I have to get finished with what I am working on for the green reading before I finish the blue and pink - I need it this summer - and then you will see them on the blog.
