Tech & Tips for teaching the ABC's

Are you looking for some new resources for teaching the ABC's and letter sounds?  I have some sites and other resources that you should check out.

This site is called Letter Speed.  Click HERE to visit the site.

Alphabet Goop students practice letter ID and sound.  Click HERE to visit the site.

My students have always enjoyed the flashlight center.  It is a versatile center.  Students can practice writing letters, numbers, or spelling words.  You will want to go over a few rules ahead of time.
  • Don't shine the light in your eyes or a classmate's eyes.
  • Turn off the flashlight when you finish.  Double check to make sure you did this because batteries are expensive.
  • Point the light on the table or floor to write.
  • Do not open the flashlight.

Here is a note you can send home to parents asking for supplies.  Click HERE for the FREE note.

I personally prefer penlights because they fit in students' hands better.  Some years around Halloween, Target Dollar Spot will have pen lights for $1.  But, they don't include the batteries.  I found the six pack of penlights below on Amazon for $6.75 which is a great deal.
