I created this ABC kit based on what I have used over the past 6 years to help teach my own children their ABCs. As an elementary teacher, I knew the importance of teaching the ABCs, but when I started looking for available resources, I wasn’t very happy with what was out there.
Flashcards would often focus on a strange combination of long and short vowels (“a” for ape and “m” for monkey), a scattered array of hard and soft c and g (circus versus car and giraffe versus garden), diagraphs that were thrown in randomly (shoes for “s” and cheese for “c”), and then some really strange ones that made no sense at all (like eye for “i”).
Over the years, I started making my own crude hand drawn flashcards, and I was blown away at how responsive my children were to them. I learned a lot about graphic software and kept working to make them better and better. As I started sharing my flashcards with friends and family, they were blown away too by how responsive their children were and how quickly they were learning.
