Stock up with my ABC Line in Print, D'Nealian or Cursive!

Welcome to the Summer Stock Up hosted by The Primary Gal! This product is near and dear to my heart ~ it is the first thing I ever made for TpT!!! I did not have a tablet at that point so I drew and painted everything by hand, the "old fashioned way!" Creating art is a huge passion of mine. I spent quite a while painting the images and figuring out the best way to scan them into the computer without loosing the quality. It was a fun summer!

The ABC Lines are available in Print, D'Nealian and Cursive. There are flash cards in Print and D'Nealian, and the Cursive comes as half sheets. I also offer an upper/lowercase letter match. 

So I use the large cards as my alphabet line. One of the reasons I love this type of alphabet line (one image per page) is that if one rips or gets lost it is so easy to replace it ~ simply reprint and laminate! You don't have to patch with tape or buy a whole new one. 

I use the flashcards cards as alphabet quiz cards for students who are struggling to remember their letters. I have also used them for my word wall. One of my students' favorite things to do with them was to use them in Literacy Centers. In the beginning of the year I would simply have them put the cards in alphabetical order. Then as their skills progressed, I would pull out a few letters and have them sort pictures that started with that letter and lay the cards all out on the floor (kg students do so much better when they can move all around!).

My students, and even the older students I tutored, really love the pictures. I chose some rather unconventional images for an alphabet line, such as a quill, a tangerine, a zinnia, to help expand their vocabulary. The kids learned pretty quickly what the new pictures were :)

I would love to hear how you plan on using these in your classroom! Enter the giveaway below to win an entire set of both the large card alphabet line and the flash cards for FREE!
