project 4 | moveable alphabet + cards

This is our homemade version of the moveable alphabet and we are enjoying it immensely!

wooden craft discs
Sharpie marker
clear contact paper

I created the word cards using Microsoft Word (four to a page). I just searched clip art to find the images and added 1.65″ circles beside each word for the letters (sized for the wooden craft discs). I intentionally left my document templates blank (didn’t insert the letters in the circles) so that I can reprint them without the letters as she learns to spell. The letters were added to the cards and wooden discs (blue consonants and red vowels) with a permanent marker. The cards are laminated.

  1. That’s a good idea. I have been collecting scrabble games at thrift stores to collect the letter tile I put in a jar. The kids create their own words or for the younger ones letter copying. I like your idea.

  2. This is a great idea. My son isn’t quite at this age yet, but I’ll tuck it away for later, thanks!x

  3. Fantastic idea. I was just at the craft store yesterday wondering what I could make out of those disks. And it’s perfect for my daughter who is learning to read.

  4. Wow! I’ve been agonizing over the purchase of a set of moveable letters. No more! Very creative.

  13. Hi there! I’ve just been looking through your old posts…and I’m so glad I did, because this idea is fantastic!! I’ve been wanting some montessori sandapaper letters for my Kindergarten son, but they’re so expensive. I think this is a great idea and I can afford it! Thanks for sharing. Will post a link back once I get them made. Maybe not until after Christmas =)
