Alphabet Finger Puppets: ABC Finger
Teach alphabet sounds with these fun
mitts that fit on your fingers. Delightful sentences
describe each mitt. For example, "Benjamin, the brown bear
with the big black bow, is eating his banana and holding a
beautiful bouquet of blue balloons." Upper case and lower
case letters are printed on opposite sides with different
scenes, so you can glue or
stitch together as finger
puppets. Can also be left separate to play a matching game
or to teach upper and lower case separately. Or you may purchase them precut and assembled to make them ready to play with right away! 26 double sided

Fun Felt Ideas:
When teaching children upper and lower case letters, a fun game to play is to buy this set uncut and unassembled. Then cut out the individual sides (there is one side of each puppet for upper case and one side for lower case) and place them upside down for a matching game. like "concentration" where they turn them over one at a time and when they find the upper or lower case match, they keep the set. The person with the most matching sets wins! If you are playing with smaller children, try it with just a few sets at a time, or whichever letters you are working on.
Try getting them uncut and puting them together yourself, using plain felt on the backs so that chidren cn use both hands, matching upper and lower cases together.
Or if purchasing uncut, use popsicle sticks with velcro dots on the tip to make stick puppets.
Another idea for the ABC Finger Plays is to make a banner by gluing either the upper or lower case letters on a large piece of felt. Mix the letters up so it is not easy for the children to find the letter. When gluing, leave the top rounded edge open to be used as a pocket. Glue a popsicle stick to the back of the other half of each letter so that the children can then place the popsicle stick letter into the pocket of the matching letter.
