For beginning ESL learners, the English alphabet and numbers can be challenging. Make learning fun with these cards that have the letters of the alphabet on one side and numbers on the other side. Students get their own cards and practice pronouncing the squares of the card. We do this each day at the beginning of the lesson for ten to twenty minutes, saying all the letters/sounds of the alphabet and then turning the card over and repeating with the numbers in sets of ten. Click on the image to the right to get your cards and some alphabet/number activities to do with your students!
