1-2-3 Come Do Some Letter Tile Activities With Me

If you're a blog hopper or Pinterest pinner, then you've probably seen all sorts of wonderfully creative activities for the alphabet or word work that involve letter tiles.

letter tiles, alphabet assessments, alphabet activities, free letter tiles, large medium and small letter tiles, daily 5 activities, word work activities, cut and glue letter tilesSome teachers and homeschoolers use magnetic ones on cookie sheets, others order colorful plastic alphabet squares from a company, or use the Scrabble tiles from a garage sale find. Although many educators have their kiddos cutting and gluing letters to make words, I didn't find any templates to do this with.

letter tiles, alphabet assessments, alphabet activities, free letter tiles, large medium and small letter tiles, daily 5 activities, word work activities, cut and glue letter tilesWith that in mind, I designed a packet that includes both upper and lowercase letter tiles in 4 different sizes.  From one set on a page, to 8 sets. Simply print, laminate and trim to use in centers and for games.

Run off extra sets for students to use for Daily 5 or other word work activities, where they cut and glue letters to make words. The packet includes a 4-page tip list, filled with ideas and games to use the letter tiles for.

Make an uncut laminated copy of the large set to use as an assessment tool.  Individually, ask a student to point to a letter or cover it with a block or other manipulative.  Click on the link to view/download the Upper and Lowercase Letter Tile packet.

As far as cutting and gluing letters to make words go, one of my most popular downloads is this word-work worksheet.  It's simple and fun and fits easily into Daily 5.  Students write and stamp the word, plus use the letters included in the packet, to cut and glue a word together.

I find the sound of rain very soothing, so I'm just going to kick back and relax, while I cut, paste and play today.  Wishing you a carefree day.
