Alphabet Money!

I am always looking for ways to making learning FUN and I think that I hit a home run with our Alphabet Money!  We have been playing with our Alphabet Money for about 6 weeks now and we LOVE it!
Alphabet Money
Alphabet Money helps teach, reinforce and master upper and lowercase letters, letter sounds and beginning sounds!  Kids can earn some Alphabet Dollars each time they learn a new letter and letter sound!  How FUN is that?

Alphabet Money comes in black and white so kids can color and create ownership of their money.  You can also print in on colored paper and laminate to make it visually fun!






This little Moffatt Girl loves playing with her Alphabet Money, which as really helped her master her beginning sounds!  Here she is practicing the letter A and the A says, /a/!


The teacher heart in me jumps for joy since our Alphabet Money meets the following Common Core Standards:

Reading: Foundational Skills
Print Concept
1. Demonstrate understanding of the organization and basic features of print.
Recognize and name all upper- and lowercase letters of the alphabet.
 Reading: Foundational Skills 
Phonics and Word Recognition
3. Know and apply grade-level phonics and word analysis skills in decoding words.
a. Demonstrate basic knowledge of letter-sound correspondences by producing the primary or most frequent sound for each consonant.

Learning to read SHOULD be FUN, especially at this age!

How do you "play" with the money? My son will enjoy coloring it, but I'm worried he won't care about them after that point.

Hi Jen,

We laminated them and play a game called your pile, my pile. I have my daughter look at the letter and/or pictures and she tells me the sound that they make. For example, the A says /a/ like apple and alligator. If she says it correctly, she keeps the money, if she doesn't it goes back in the pile and she tries again. You could also give him a piece of Alphabet Money and he can hunt around the house for something that begins with that letter. We have also put them in her play register so she has constant exposure to them:) Most of the activities should probably be teacher/parent led at this age:) I hope that helps a little.
