Toddlers and preschoolers seem to have a natural curiosity that makes a simple set of cards on a ring soooo exciting! I created this set for my 2-3 year olds who just love to look at the letters and pictures, and their moms love to have these on hand for fidgety moments in restaurants or waiting in line.
The pictures are from my ABC Letter Worksheets, where the pictures represent the actual sounds the letters make instead of using words that begin with that sound. (This works better with my EFL kids who don’t have enough vocabulary to make word cards very helpful.) The + in the corner shows you where to punch the hole so all the cards will line up nicely.
You can print these out on business cards, or just on card stock. To make things easier I used the template for Avery 5881 business cards so you don’t have to spend so much time cutting, but it will print on any paper just as well.
- ABCRingBook <<——- click to print for free
- Card Stock
- color printer
- loose leaf ring
- scissors or paper cutter
- hole puncher (a regular one works fine, but I have heard good things about the Crop-A-Dile also)
- Laminator, optional
- laminating sheets, optional (I am a big fan of the Business Card Laminating Pouches because it makes my inner control freak happy to have all my cards exactly the same size!)
All you need to do is print out the file onto your business cards or card stock, separate/cut the cards out, and then laminate them if you like. Then, punch a hole in the corner of each card, grab your binder rings, slide the cards on in any order you like, and PRESTO! You have your very own set of ABC cards ready for entertaining your little ones or to use however you see fit!
