• Can be used as an extension activity. Children trace round the initial dotted letter whilst visually associating that letter with the pictures.

Alphabet cards
• Alphabet cards should be printed off twice, laminated and cut out.
• Children can play alphabet snap
• Some letters are shown in different fonts such as ‘k’ and ‘f’ depending on what your school handwriting policy is.
• Some cards e.g. ‘c’ show a cat or a candle
• Other games – lay out 4 or 5 letters in alphabetical order ,e.g. k, l, m, n, o, cover them over. Take a letter away without the children seeing and ask what letter is missing.

Practise writing frames using Sassoon dotted font
• These are in upper and lower cases. Each one should be laminated.
• After focussing on e.g. ‘t’, children can practise writing over the dots and then without the dots as handwriting exercises.

Alphabet Pictures Games/Assessment

• Enlarge the A4 size sheet to A3 and the sheet with the alphabet.
• Laminate the Alphabet Pictures sheet (leave as whole)
• Laminate the Alphabet sheet then cut out each letter for use with Alphabet Pictures.
• Children can play in pairs. A timer can be set to make the game more fun.
• A child asks his/her partner to find the picture beginning with ‘s’. The other child picks out one of the letters and places it over that picture on the Alphabet Picture Mat.
