Freebie Friday {teacher week}


Happy Friday!!

Today is the last day of Teacher Week over at Blog Hoppin’. Today is all about freebies so make sure you jump over to the site and see what everyone is sharing.


One of the activities we did last week was to use letter cards to practice spelling names. I wish I had better pictures of these but I got busy helping and forget to take more pictures.

But here are a few…


I copied these letter cards on all different colors of construction paper and divided my class into groups of 3. I gave them each a “bucket of letters” and a sentence strip. They had to find the letters to spell their names.


After they found their letters they had to cut them out, and glue them in order. I don’t have any pictures after they started cutting or gluing.


This was great practice for names but we will use these cards all year to spell words. You can download a free set of letter cards from my Teachers Pay Teachers Store.

The cards include all 26 letters lowercase and uppercase.

Here is the direct link: Letter Cards

  5. Just took a look around your store. Love the little Brown Bear cards! I have tons of the yellow worth the price! They last forever! Thanks! I also pinned this name/sentence strip idea!
