Printable Alphabet ChartApril 10, 2014
I have been looking for a good printable alphabet chart for Matoskah and found several. After printing them and trying them out with him, I realized that there were items in each one that he just didn’t understand or relate to at all… YoYo for Y and he doesn’t enjoy yoyos, foX for X didn’t make sense to him because it doesn’t START with “x”, etc. Every chart had SOMETHING that just didn’t click with him and for him to learn, it MUST click with him. I already knew how much he loves animals, then we had a trip to the zoo the day after his 5th birthday and I got to see how much he enjoyed seeing all of the different animals, so I got the crazy idea to make our own alphabet chart with only real animals, one for each letter no matter how strange or off the wall the animal may seem. Yes, some were very hard to find, like animals that start with U and V (didn’t want to use a vulture, he thinks they are kinda ugly. LOL). So finally I got images of all of the animals, made a template for the chart and set it up. He LOVES it!
Please feel free to use this chart for your own personal needs, but no commercial uses. Download the images (there are 4 separate images), and select them all (Hold CTRL and single click on them to select all 4 at once), then right click on any of them and select “Print”. I used photo print settings with plain paper, selected “fit to page” in the options and set it to print two 5×7 per page at landscape setting. That gave me my printout that you see him holding in the picture. Then I taped the two pages together and there ya go, a nice all animal alphabet chart!
