My daughter is currently working on beginning sounds in preschool, so after all the robot books we've been reading, I thought I would make her some robot themed puzzles. These little robots are too cute and now I want to make robot puzzles for #allthethings. For this activity, I decided to just focus on matching the letter (lowercase) with the picture that starts with that letter. To make it a little trickier, I made two robots for each letter.
It got easier and easier as we had fewer cards left to match up. She worked really hard to match up both sets of alphabet pictures and letters. We talked briefly about the vowels making more than one sound - she isn't really there yet but I wanted her to see why both pictures were correct for a, e, i, o, u.
Some other ideas for using these puzzles:
-intervention group work
-putting the robots in alphabetical order
-at home practice for struggling students
-a way to pair up students (give some students the letters and some the pictures. They have to find their match and that is the partner they will work with that day.)
