How to prepare this teaching resource:

  • Select the large or small printable letter tiles and the font you would like to use.
  • Print the letter tiles on thicker cardboard for added durability.
  • Cut the letter tiles and store them in a reusable zip lock bag.
  • If using these tiles with other sets of letter tiles, you could stick a piece of coloured paper to the tiles before cutting them out. This will help to keep the correct set together after the different sets of tiles have been mixed together.
  • You may also like to stick a small magnet to the back of the tiles so they can be used on the whiteboard.

How to use this teaching resource:

  • Students can place the blend letter tiles down and then use picture cards to match the beginning sounds.
  • Use them as flashcards for the students to identify and say aloud.
  • Students can make words using the letter tiles from different sets.
  • Provide a copy of a particular blend letter tile to students who may need extra assistance with that sound.

How to use this teaching resource

  • Have a constant supply of these cut up and stored in labelled containers (particularly the basic alphabet letters).  The plastic coloured hardware ‘screw’ containers that attach to the wall are ideal. I have also seen them in plastic ‘bead’/ scrapbooking containers and in hanging plastic bags.
  • Print off a couple of sets to laminate and glue magnetic tape on the back of each tile – great for fridge, whiteboard, and individual metal cookie tray word work.
  • Just have the letters / graphemes out which you are focusing on at the time or depending on the level of your children – put out the whole lot….
  • One of my favourite activities is to set up a huge ongoing display where children can build words and glue them onto the display. This is great as part of language group time or even for early finishers or free time. Have word samples available from your theme words, sight words, or cvc (consonant vowel consonant) words.
  • If you are just focusing on the alphabet letters – children use these to glue the letters in alphabetical order.
  • Children match the upper case and lower case alphabet letters and glue them together, or place them together using the magnetic tiles.
  • Children make up their own names using the letter tiles.
  • **Word Game – (Before this game, decide on how many letters the winning word/s is going to be, you can also decide how many words need to be made to win – for cvc activities one word with 3 letters is a good start. Older children could be 3 words with 6 letters)
  • Place a pile of letters in the middle of a group. Children take turns to throw the dice or spinner. Children pick up that number of letters out of the pile (they cannot choose the letters just pick randomly).
  • This continues all the while – children are trying to use their letters to make up the winning words.
  • First to make up these words wins.
  • For older children, have a sentence written on the board for children to find the letters and glue into their language books.
  • Glue a line of vowels into the children’s books. Children then have to write in the first and last letters to make up 3 letter (cvc) words.
  • Use the printable alphabet letters to fill in a huge outline of an object beginning with that letter. For example, use the letter ‘a’ tiles to glue into and fill up a great big apple. Children could colour the letters in before they glue them on.
