ABC Come Learn With Me!

abc come learn with me

I am super excited to start this new series!  There are SO many fun ways to learn the alphabet (and it IS important that it is fun!), that I have decided to devote an entire series to it.  As I come across great ideas, whether they are from blogland, from colleagues, or my own ideas, I will showcase them right here! Be on the lookout for the icon above!

This week, I have a freebie for you! It’s a fun game called AlphaBears.  You will just need to click on the image below to download!

Slide1

All that you will need to do is print out the AlphaBears, laminate them, and glue or tape them onto popsicle sticks.  You could glue them back to back or make sticks for both uppercase and lowercase letters.

There are 2 fun songs that you can sing with the AlphaBears

Slide3Slide4

The first song is just to practice letter id.  Simply pass out a letter bear to each student, sing the song and say the letter you are looking for.  You could laminate this page and use a dry-erase marker to write the letter in the box, or you could use a magnetic letter and a cookie sheet.

For the second song, you are practicing letter sounds!

You can use the letter bears in a variety of ways – you can pass them out and use them for calling kids to the easel for Daily News, for lining up, dismissal and so on!

You could also have the kids line up in ABC order.

Have fun!  Let me know how this game works for you!

  3. Love love! Thanks for sharing! :) I'm currently putting together file folder games for my "fast finishers" and I'm thinking these would be great for ABC order or capital and lower case match up!

  13. Cute activity and songs. After teaching the songs, the kids could probably lead in small group workstations.

  17. Kathleen- super cute as always. I was wondering what font did you use for for the ABC letters in your circle log at the top?
