Workbox of the Week

This week's workbox is these awesome laminated alphabet letters that I got from Activity Bags, which I reviewed on this blog last week.
The idea is simple. Your child matches upper and lower case letters, and then checks the picture on the back of the cards to make sure they are a match. It's a great independent activity, although I don't recommend giving them all 52 cards at once. It very quickly became overwhelming for my little sprout.
Another idea with the cards is to have the child sort a pile of lower and a pile of capital letters. They can also put the letters in alphabetical order.
Activity: Laminated ABC cards from Activity Bags
Materials Needed: Card template in book
Level: Preschool and up
Cost: Books are $15 each or $27 for a bundle.
Fun Factor: 2 out of 5 for my girl
Work for the Teacher: Buy the book, photocopy and laminate the cards.
