How to create 3 Sets of Caller Cards + 8 Distinct Nine-Box Grids Each for Upper-Case & Lower Case Block Letters
A-I, I-Q, R -Z & a-i, i-q, r-z.
Who They’re For: Teachers & Helpers of Novice Students & New Readers of English.
How They May Help: Basic-level language learners and readers might better master the English alphabet “in thirds” of 9 letters at a time. It may help to start with upper-case block letters (capitals) before introducing their lower-case equivalents—or vice versa.
What You’ll Do:
- To use as Caller Cards for Bingo or Matching Cards for Lotto, make at least one set each of upper-case letters A-I, I-Q, R-Z—and of lower-case letters a-i, i-q, r-z. Note that each card includes hand-printing guidelines, pronunciation of its letter name, and symbols for the sound(s) it may stand for. You may or may not choose to print out identifying Card Backs on the other side.
- For each of six games, make as many copies as you need of the 8 variants of each 9-box Bingo/Lotto Grid. These may be printed out one– or two-sided (flipped on the long edge, horizontally). Note that tips for learning and game-play can be cut from the side of each page.
- Customize procedures to each unique group. Teach and learn the English alphabet through game prep, play, and follow-up.
