Alphabet Activities for Adults

Why do I feel guilty in not having legit alphabet activity printables for my ESL adult students? I feel like as ESL teachers, we seem to skip this step and jump straight into sight words and grammar. 

And there's a huge focus on grammar in teaching ESL. It's important, but I strongly feel that ESL students need proper grasp of their basic alphabet and phonics before they begin to master grammatical concepts.

Are you the same?

This is why I created quite a set of alphabet activities which would suit ESL adult learners perfectly. Especially if they've just started to learn English and are at beginner's level of English. 

If you're looking for a basic alphabet mat printable, especially when introducing alphabet lowercase and uppercase to ESL students, check out Find and Match Alphabet Activities, the download in there includes a PDF with letter cards (printed on coloured cardstock) and the alphabet mat which you could print on A3 to be dramatic. ;)

This is a fairly simple game to setup. If you have a large classroom and between 13-30 students, you can successfully prep this activity. You also have so many options on how to use it. 

Here's how I used it:

First, print the alphabet letters (choice of uppercase or lowercase set) on coloured stock paper (for durability). Then cut them apart. You can laminate them, but I find that with adult learners stock paper is enough because they don't generally have greasy hands like younger kids might. However, laminating them is a great option too.

I then would print as many recording sheets as I need for the number of students in the class. Generally, each student should have one recording sheet. 

Use glutack to hang the alphabet cards around the room. Then get the students to find the letters and record them onto their sheets. You can get them to tick the letter (if they are beginners) or write the letters they find (depending on their level). 

The options on using this printable are endless! I hope you and your students enjoy these!
