Today I’m sharing another free activity for learning letter sounds.
I created these bright strips as a simple way for my Four to review letter sounds.
The download includes 26 strips. I printed the pages on card stock and laminated them (with my awesome home laminator). Then I cut the strips apart and set them out with some clothes pins.
For each strip, my son clipped the picture that started with the letter on the left. If you want to make these self checking, you could draw a little dot on the back where the clothespin should go. Then your child could easily flip over the card after he’s clipped it to see if he’s right.
Perfect for a classroom center or a kitchen table activity!
To make these easy to store, you could simply bind them with a rubber band OR punch a hole in the left corner and use a metal ring to keep the set together, like I did with my bear pattern strips. Your child might want to flip through the cards and point to each picture, or you could take them off the ring so he can clip them.

Alphabet Curriculum for Preschool
Our curriculum includes lessons for teaching both upper and lowercase letter names and sounds. You’ll get three lessons per letter, built-in review, simple handwriting practice, rhyming, syllable counting, phonemic awareness, and a whole lot more!
Thank you for these awesome activities. I really appreciate this. This will reinforce my teaching.
Thank you for your work, for the ideas.
than you very very very much.
Love the activity.
You’re welcome, Ruth!
I really appreciate the materials you offer as freebies! As a support teacher, I am in constant need to finding materials without any budget. God bless!
Thank you, Mary!
Can’t get anything printed…just keeps sending me from one link to another.

Thank you for the clip cards! I love them!
You’re welcome, Theresa!
Superb, loved it
Thank you so much for the kind words, Anita! I hope you find many helpful resources on my site.
So I tried printing this and for some reason it is downloading weird and not all the cards are downloading either!! Help!!
Read this post and see what it says about Adobe Reader. That almost always fixes printing issues.
Good work and of course the work is based on the new concepts of kids getting involved in learning processes in a way they learn without noticing that they do. Every single activity is well designed and elegantly produced with kids fascinating photos or clip arts and good pieces of advice for teachers in how to use the activities. Thanks a million !
Thank you so much for the kind words, Kamal!
Do you print these at home or do you get them printed somewhere? I feel like this would use a lot of ink. I love them, but wondering about how much ink I would go through. Thanks!
Sorry for the delay in answering your question! I do print all my printables at home, but I have quite a hefty printer because of my blog work. If you are trying to conserve ink, my “real images” printables may not be for you, unless you think more than one child will enjoy them. Teachers often appreciate this sort of printable because they laminate them and use them for years in centers.
I tutor students in reading and with younger students, I needed something more playful…thank you!
I’m so glad you can use these, Judy!
THANK YOU VERY MUCH 🙂
You’re very welcome, Mariela!
My son really loved these! Thanks so much! You have inspired me to start my own teaching blog, Training Treasures. Just got it up and running a couple of weeks ago. Hope you’ll stop by!
Congratulations on starting your own blog, Ashley! You’ve got a beautiful start!
Thank you for this fun activity!
You’re very welcome, Kelly!
Thank you very much!
I’m a newbie in the teaching world. It really helps me ❤
What a great idea and yes so much saved time
This is great although I can’t access the free downloads can you please send them to my email is that ok
Thank you so much🙏. Great learning resources🌺
thank you so much
I love this idea for my Kindergarten classroom-but can I only download through the file site it connects to? I really would prefer not to put my credit card information in, and then have to cancel it so I’m not charged the $40 fee….just thought I’d ask 🙂 Looks like great quality, and a really valuable tool for letter sound practice! Thanks 🙂
Sorry this is a late reply, Allison– I try to answer these questions quickly but comments were going to my spam folder, agh! No wonder my inbox was staying so neat and tidy. 🙂 You definitely should NOT have to enter any credit card information!!! Just click on the brown “HERE” button and and the printable should download and show up right on your screen. I do want to know if this happens again as I may have to change one of my advertising networks. Do let me know… and so sorry about that!
Another great resource, thanks so much. The only one my kids can’t do is ‘r’ as they have no idea what a racoon is!
Oh, that’s funny, Mo – where do you live? Just a few weeks ago we had a raccoon get into our garage over night and make a giant mess! And a couple years ago my husband hooked up a night camera and spotlights to see how the raccoons were getting into our garden. We’re all too familiar with them!
I’m in New Zealand – so we’d need P for possum (which do similar damage as raccoons by the sound of it) or S for stoat because they both kill native wildlife and vegetation.
LOVE these! Thank you!
You’re very welcome, Toni!
These will be perfect for my son! Thank you so much!
So glad you can use them, Dorothy!
YAY! More great activities with limited prep for me. Thank you so very much!
You’re very welcome, Jess – very glad to save you some time!
