This ABC Board is an easy DIY for teaching and working with letter sounds.
When B was younger we would lay this tri-fold project board on the floor and let him do his coloring and crafts on it. This would protect the floor and sometimes he had fun coloring directly on it.
Now that he is older, I wanted to find a different use for the board. So I made it into an ABC board for matching letter sounds. I sealed 13 envelopes and cut them in half (actually a little less than half so they would all fit on the board). I wrote the letters on each one and taped them on the board.
When I introduced the game, I asked B what the picture was. After he said the word, I would say “What letter does king start with? K-k-k king”. He would say the letter, find it on the board, and put the card in.
B thinks this game is so cool! He was so excited about his “BIG ABC book”. This also has turned into a great vocabulary lesson. I realized he wasn’t sure what all of the pictures were when he called a picture of a piano a xylophone.
