Alphabet Review

We've completed The Letter of the Week twice through, and to end our recent session, Butterfly has completed some Letter Review Work.  Here is what we did.

Using our homemade letters tiles, Butterfly matched the letters on review alphabet pages.

We reviewed letter sounds with our Consonant Cards.

Letter Sound Activity Cards- using mini clothespins to mark the answers, which of the two pictures starts with the letter indicated on the card.

Marking the first letter sound for each picture card.

Matching upper and lower case letters with Alphabet Cards.

We have a file folder game box full of different learning activities that I have made for Butterfly, and the newest folder I have put together are Letter Mazes.

I laminated these with my laminator and used sheet protectors, so we can re-use them more than once with our wipe-off markers.

I also printed and sheet protected some alphabet dot to dot sheets.

We used more file folder games that reviewed the letters, including this Eric Carle caterpillar game, matching the lower case letter cards onto the upper case letters on the folder.

Here's another first letter sound file folder game that we reviewed with, using a wipe-off marker, filling in the hearts with the first letter sound for each picture.

This is a file folder game I put together where you can put the words in alphabetical order.  Butterfly looked at the first letter of the word and matched it up to it's letter on the alphabetical chart.

I have a set of clothespins that I wrote letters on, both in upper and lower case.  With these letter discs, Butterfly matched the upper case to it's lower case by clipping the answers on.

And on this disc, they are pictures, so we said the word out loud and Butterfly indicated what letter the picture started with, then clipped on the answer with the letter clothespins.

Butterfly circled the lower case to match the upper case in these worksheets.

We used a bingo dabber and our Alphabet Cards for this Chicka Chicka Boom Boom game.  I called out a letter and showed Butterfly the card and she had to find it on the coconut tree and dab it.

For lower case letters, I didn't show her the cards in this round, but only called out the letter.

These are all great alphabet review sheets from Confessions' K4 Curriculum pack.

These are great match up worksheets, where you match up the common beginning sound/letter from

And these are the review activities we've been busy with to review the letters and their sounds!
