I am sightly obsessed with Alphabet Arcs. Mom has sets that she uses with her small groups and I have wanted my own for a few years. I ordered seven of the laminated uppercase and lowercase mats and the plastic letters from www.alphabetletter.com and have used them a few times with my students during small groups. They have raced to place the letters in order on the mats, found letters as I say them and found letters for the sounds I say. But I just knew that these arc mats could be used for so much more.

You can find the kit here. I made the picture cards in both color and outline for easy printing!
