1-2-3 Come Do Some Alphabet Activities With Me

Woo hoo!  I just finished another alphabet-themed packet.  This one features alphabet wheels, and is chock full of activities, worksheets, assessments, games, goodies and fun!

alphabet activities, alphabet worksheets, alphabet games, alphabet posters, alphabet assessments, alphabet cards, alphabet wheels, alphabet crafts, It's a whopping 190 pages long!  I never set out to create anything more than 20-30 pages, but then I get on a roll, and one thing leads to another, 'til I finally have to say that's it, and endeavor to turn the creative juices off.

alphabet activities, alphabet worksheets, alphabet games, alphabet posters, alphabet assessments, alphabet cards, alphabet wheels, alphabet crafts, I'm relieved to get it done, as the "Turn While You Learn" picture wheels, nearly drove me insane.

alphabet activities, alphabet worksheets, alphabet games, alphabet posters, alphabet assessments, alphabet cards, alphabet wheels, alphabet crafts, Lots of tweaking to get the layout just right, so that the letter, as well as the matching picture would show up in the middle of the appropriate window.

I have 3 FREEBIES from the packet that I'm offering in this blog, as I tell you a bit about my latest labor of love. 

Alphabet wheels are that "something different" that will get your kiddos excited about learning to recognize letters.  The wheels have been around in some form since the 70's, when I made my first one in college for a methods class.

alphabet activities, alphabet worksheets, alphabet games, alphabet posters, alphabet assessments, alphabet cards, alphabet wheels, alphabet crafts, They are a super-fun way to whole group or individually assess a variety of alphabet standards. I've designed my alphabet wheels so that your kiddos can practice uppercase letters or lowercase letters by using an apple "pointer" that's attached to the center of the wheel. 

alphabet activities, alphabet worksheets, alphabet games, alphabet posters, alphabet assessments, alphabet cards, alphabet wheels, alphabet crafts, They can also match the lowercase letter to the uppercase letter using two wheels.  Finally, children can match a picture to a lower or uppercase letter, to practice letter sounds, as well as words that begin with that letter.

alphabet activities, alphabet worksheets, alphabet games, alphabet posters, alphabet assessments, alphabet cards, alphabet wheels, alphabet crafts, Make a "triple wheel" by combining all of the wheels, so you can practice all three alphabet skills.

There are 5 large picture wheels all with different pictures to better increase vocabulary and letter-to-word association.  (Color plus black & white).

I've included directions for whole group assessing with the alphabet wheels, an assessment recording sheet, plus a note home to parents, enlisting their help for a struggling child.

Besides these items, the packet also includes the following:

alphabet activities, alphabet worksheets, alphabet games, alphabet posters, alphabet assessments, alphabet cards, alphabet wheels, alphabet crafts, An Alphabet Poster Game, with 20-template options, including pictures (black & white + color), words, uppercase letters and lowercase letters.

  • A large “Trace & Write” Uppercase Letter Wheel
  • A large blank wheel, so students can write their own letters, and/or draw their own pictures, along with 7 lowercase wheels to choose from, including a lowercase one that is scrambled and not in alphabetical order, which is great for assessing. They all have matching “Trace & Write” worksheets.

alphabet activities, alphabet worksheets, alphabet games, alphabet posters, alphabet assessments, alphabet cards, alphabet wheels, alphabet crafts, There's an alphabet recording-sheet bookmark, 2 “Trace & Write” letter worksheets, and 4 I Spy A Letter” game worksheets.

"Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under trees on a summer's day, listening to the murmur of the water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is by no means a waste of time. " -John Lubbock
