Utilizing the Alphabet Letter Formation Activity

Additionally, these cards are very simple to use. Students will take a card from the pile and trace the uppercase and lowercase letters on the card. Then, they will say the word pictured. If you would like them to say the sound the letter makes, they can do that too.

Each card features a picture that is easy to identify and gives the child another tool to use to remember the sound the letter makes. Example: a, /a/, apple.

More Ways to Use the Alphabet Cards

This alphabet activity provides students with three different forms of exposure to the same letter. That is very beneficial for students just learning letters or students that are struggling to learn them.

To add more fine motor skills practice to this letter tracing activity, have students write the letter on a sheet of paper after using each card, so you have a record of the letter cards they worked on and they get practice writing the letter without a tracing guide.
