Great for in class or online use, your students will use this digital magnetic letters spelling resource as they practice building words. It works with any reading / early literacy program. You will get links to a total of 18 Jamboards, each with draggable letter tiles for every letter of the alphabet. In addition to the basic letter tiles, there are optional tiles with commonly used letter combinations. The latest update to this file also includes accented letters, which makes the file useful for teachers of languages other than English. (See the file preview to see which letter combinations and accented letters are included.)
There are many ways to use this file!
- You could project it for large group work,
- use it on an interactive whiteboard,
- or you could share the file with students. They can each have their own copy, or the activity can be collaborative if they are given shared access to the file.
- You can customize a Jamboard to include only the letter tiles students will need for a particular lesson.
- Just like a 'regular' magnetic letters center activity, you can have students copy the words they've created onto a piece of paper. Unlike a regular magnetic letters center activity, you can go back and look at the work they did with the magnetic letters to see if any errors in the written copy were made with the letters or were made when copying.
You can share the files with students in all the usual ways that you can share Google files. This activity is not just great for distance learning, but also works well for activities in class because you
- have an unlimited supply of letters because any of the tiles can be duplicated (never run out of ‘e’s!)
- don’t have to tidy the letters away after use or deal with unorganized letters (HUGE time savings!)
- can stop students in the middle of an activity and they can come back to exactly where they left off at another time.
Please note: you will need a Google account access to Google Jamboard to use this product. Do not assume that because you have a Google account that you or your students have access to Jamboard! You may need to check with your technology staff if Jamboard has been enabled for both students and teachers.
