The letter cards could also be used by older students to make words. A recording sheet is included for this. Please note that the letter cards do not provide the entire alphabet. Letters are provided to spell Happy, Easter, spring, April, & egg.
You have reached the one stop shop! My teaching experience spans more than 3 decades and reflects my years in every grade from K to 5, Gifted & Talented to Reading Recovery, enrichment to Title I. The majority of my experience is pretty evenly divided between 1st grade and G/T for grades 1 - 5. My shop, then, is filled with 1st grade fun curricula and myriad critical and creative thinking products for GATE self-contained and/or enrichment programs. In 2000, I became a Reading Recovery teacher. That fabuous experience translates into some wonderful reading materials created for my students and now you can share them, too.
