Alphabet Card Flash Cards

Learning the alphabetic code is an important part of early literacy.  This is also true for ESOL students.  My daughter is 2 1/2 years old. She is learning English as her first language. I came up with these alphabet cards as a way for her to learn new vocabulary, name familiar people, and the letters and sounds of the alphabet.

For ESOL students they could take part in a similar activity by going on a scavenger hunt for people and objects for each letter of the alphabet and taking pictures of them, then creating their own flash cards.  The flash cards can then be printed on cardstock or developed using a photo sight. Recently there have been deals for developing free photographs.  I used one from Amazon.  Shutterfly also has one  20 FREE 4×6 prints + free standard shipping.

I’ve included a template if you would like to create your own alphabet flash cards using photographs. Just insert pictures into the PowerPoint template, save as a .jpg file and then upload the file into a photo developing sight (or print on cardstock).
