Classroom Freebies

Color Me alphabet poster

Here's a fun little freebie that can be used several different ways.

Pass the "color me" alphabet poster out to your students. 
Give them a few moments to color, then play "I Spy A Letter" as a fun way to whole group assess. 

Give your kiddos an M&M or other manipulative and call out a letter. 
Children place their piece of candy on that letter. 
You can see at a glance who is having difficulty.

Another thing you can do is put laminated copies in a literacy center. 
Using your lowercase foam letters, or letter tiles, have students match the lowercase manipulative to the uppercase letter on the mat. 

Children can color their alpha-mat all at once, or one letter at a time when they have studied & mastered it.
