1-2-3 Come Do Some Alphabet Activities With Me
Because of the seasonal themes, the Alpha Wheels are a perfect addition, and my kiddos LOVE making them.
I enjoy them, because they are a quick, easy & fun way to practice letters, and build the vocabulary needed to give an example of a word, with that beginning sound.
They feature 6 nouns that begin with that letter, and come in black & white, as well as full-color.
Use a colorful one for an independent center and use the black & white pattern for a whole-group or individual word work activity, where kiddos make their own.
You'll find that your students will look forward to making and collecting them.
For writing, vocabulary building and alphabetizing practice, I've also included a worksheet where students trace & write the words then put them in alphabetical order.
Click on the pictures or hot links above, to zip on over to my TpT shop to have a look.
I sincerely hope these alpha-wheels make letter practice more fun for your kiddos.
Fittingly, the featured FREEBIE today, is an alphabet packet, with a set of alphabet cards & poster which you can play games with. I hope you find it useful.
That's it for today. A work crew is coming in to put a new window in my office, so I don't get to "play" today, but it's time and money well-spent, as I won't be freezing all winter!
Wishing you a relaxing day.
1-2-3 Come Do Some Letter Pp Activities With Me
Woo Hoo for Diane's Dollar Deals! I'm featuring two, pumpkin-themed ones, on the blog today. Dollar Deal Alphabet Wheels, are a quick, easy & fun way to practice letters.
I priced them at only a dollar, so that you can afford to collect all of the individual alphabet wheels.
They feature 6 nouns that begin with that letter, and come in black and white, as well as full-color, so that you can use them as an independent center or individual word work activity.
I've also included a worksheet where students trace & write the words in alphabetical order.
Click on the link to zip on over to my TpT shop to take a peek at the Pp is for Pumpkin Dollar Deal Alphabet Wheel.
The other Pumpin Dollar Deal is an emergent reader: Pp is for Pumpkin.
It's filled with beginning letter Pp nouns. There are 11.
It's also packed with Dolch sight words and great practice for pronouns, as well as end punctuation.
Students read the simple sentences using the pictures as clues, and then add the appropriate end punctuation. (period, question mark, exclamation point).
They trace and write the Pp word, then color the picture.
There are 5, mini-strip pages, to a one-page template.
Students trim, collate and staple to the front of their "Pp is for pumpkin" cover to make a flip booklet.
I've also included matching picture and word cards to play games like Memory Match and "I Have; Who Has?".
They come in color as well as black & white, so that you can use them as an independent center for Daily 5 Word Work, or children can make their own game to practice at home.
Students can match picture to picture, or picture to word. They can also alphabetize the word cards and use them to write their own sentences.
As with the individual alphabet wheels, I've priced these emergent readers at only a dollar, to make them affordable, so that you can collect all of the flip booklets in this series.

While you're there, I would so appreciate it if you'd click on the "Follow me" button, so you'll know when I post more Diane's Dollar Deals & FREEBIES.
I'm only 11 shy of reaching the 700 followers milestone! I know it's kind of silly getting excited about breaking records, but I do none the less. Thanks in advance.
Speaking of FREEBIES, today's is also pumpkin related. It's an apple-pumpkin Venn diagram.
Venn diagrams are a quick, easy & fun way to practice comparison-contrast writing. This Venn diagram is a perfect way to reinforce and review the things your students learned about apples and pumpkins.
That's it for today. I'm trying to finish some of the other fall-themed letter wheels & emergent readers and will hopefully have Ll is for Leaf done by the end of the week.
Hope you can pop back. Wishing you a joy-filled day.
