Using the Alphabet Card
by Marilyn Duncan
adapted from The Kindergarten Book

The alphabet card has features that support the development of sound-to-letter relationships (clay 1991).

For example, I know that going from the known to the unknown is an easier process for any learner. Children typically are able to say a word before they can write it. Therefore, going from the sounds the child can say to writing down the letter or clusters of letters that make the sound is easier than going from an isolated letter and trying to remember its sound.

The alphabet card links a familiar picture to the sound and the letter.  The link between the picture and the letter needs to be clear for the child, so it can be used almost immediately. The pictures are of objects that children can identify. I hear children saying, “Mom starts like moon—here it is!”

The letters on the child-sized card are lowercase only. Children usually come to school writing in capital letters. Writers use capital letters for specific purposes, so I want these students to make the shift to writing in lowercase as quickly as possible.

In addition to single letters, the alphabet card I use also shows three diagraphs (ch, th, sh). These combined letters have a unique sound that cannot be segmented when the child is listening for sounds in words.  The alphabet card provides support for the child with picture for common diagraphs ch—chair, sh—shell, th—thumb.

Familiarity with the alphabet is increased by playing alphabet games, working with the card one-on-one and in small groups, and using the card in writing demonstrations. The alphabet card should quickly become a valuable resource for the child, the teacher, and the parent.
