Reinforce uppercase and lowercase letter recognition, letter formation, and letter sounds with hands-on and engaging activities. These digital task card decks will work on learning to identify and name the letters of the alphabet.
Boom Cards are a great way to reinforce skills and concepts with your students. I love using them in the classroom as a math or literacy center, you can learn more about how I do that in my Boom Cards blog post.
Since there is nothing to print or prep, using Boom Cards makes planning your centers so easy. They can also be used on all devices- so your students can use these digital decks anywhere.
Learning about the alphabet can be part of a Letter of the Day or Letter of the Week. You can also use these decks all year to reinforce letter knowledge.
Each deck includes activities that work on a variety of skills:
There are a few ways that students can practice making letters: Trace the Letters, Make the Letter, and Letter Puzzles.
These are great for ensuring that students know how to make uppercase and lowercase letters.
It’s also important for students to be able to pick out the letters and sort them, so I’ve included these activities: Sort the Letters, Letter Search, Cover the Letter, Alphabet Search and Letter Path.
Those cards will have students work on letter discrimination and knowing the different between the upper and lowercase letter.
Of course we also want to work on letter sounds, so I’ve included a Beginning Sounds activity. Students will have to pick out an image that begins with that letter (except for X, they will have to pick out the ending sound).
Working on phonics in a variety of different ways helps students start to make the connection between the symbol and its sound.
I’ve included audio clips on each of the slides that explain what they need to do for each activity. This will make it easy for them to complete the decks independently.
If you are looking for more ways to reinforce letter recognition and formations, take a look at this blog post. It is full of literacy center ideas that you can use in your classroom.
