Learning to tell recognize the letters of the alphabet in both upper and lowercase form is one of the first steps in learning to read, but learning to recognize those same letters in various different fonts is also an important skill.
Unfortunately, not everything we read is written in the exact same font and some fonts, while they may be pretty, can be a little difficult to decipher.
Using different fonts as a practice tool when working to master upper and lowercase letters is a great way to fill that gap and these alphabet spin and cover pages are the perfect way to do it!
This printable set includes all 26 letters of the alphabet with each one working on a single letter.
Both the upper and lowercase versions of each letter are there and each one is in its own distinct font making differentiating between them something that will require more than just a quick glance for those that already know their alphabet.
Now, these pages are no/low prep meaning, at most, you’ll need to run them through your laminator if you’d like. Other than that, they’re ready to go.
You will, however, need to add a spinner of your choice or make one.
Making one is super simple!
Grab a pencil and a paperclip and use them together as shown in the photo above and you’ve got yourself a spinner.
Just give the paperclip a spin while holding the pencil in place and cover the version of the letter that it lands on.
For those that are just starting out and may not have the attention span for a longer activity, just have them cover all of the particular versions of a letter that they land on rather than one at a time.
If they have just learned their letters and are using this as practice, you’ll also want to start out with just a letter or two at a time so as not to overwhelm them.
For those that have a little bit more experience, give them a few letters at a time or have them cover the letters one at a time while working through the pages.
