Alphabet Puzzle Mania Pack 1

This set contains a set of uppercase letter puzzles as well as lowercase letter puzzles! There are 52 in all! These puzzles would be great for a phonics center, an early finisher game or as wake-up work! Print, laminate, cut each letter puzzle apart and place into plastic zipper bags to use. I like to include at least 2 different letters in each bag—so as to provide a bit of a challenge for the children. 

These puzzles are a great way to give your students practice with letter sounds while giving them opportunities to build their fine motor and spatial skills as well!

As always, if you need something customized to better fit the needs of your classroom setting, feel free to email me at:

I began teaching back in 2002 and since then, I have taught 3K, 4K and Kindergarten.  I have loved each age group that I have taught, but I have found that Kindergarten is where my heart lies!  The love of knowledge that kindergarten children posess is awe-inspiring!  They want to KNOW all about their world, and so I endeavor to make their journey a little more creative and fun at the same time!  

Thank you for taking the time to look at my shop!  Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns as I want you to be excited about the products that you purchase!  Let's work together to make certain that our Littles get our very best!

Thank you again!
