Help your child learn to spell his name by creating a name puzzle. By putting the pieces of the puzzle together, your child will learn the order of the letters in his name!
Recognizing each letter is one of the first steps of the reading process – but learning letter names outside of alphabetical order can be challenging. This activity gets the brain and the body moving and learning together. Grab some sidewalk chalk and take learning outdoors by making a letter hopscotch.
Learning letters doesn’t have to be done with flash cards or worksheets. For preschoolers, you can incorporate learning into fun activities, like mazes. In this maze, your child will practice letter recognition to go solve the maze from start to finish.
This simple card game is a fun, easy way to teach your child letter sounds.
Play this game with your child to learn about letters in a mysterious way!
Help your child label and understand different feelings.

Welcome to the Virtual Teaching Resource Hub of the University of Florida Literacy Institute (UFLI). We’re glad you’re here! We have developed this site to assist teachers as they explore new ways to teach foundational reading skills using technology. This site has tools for reading instruction and intervention with children in the elementary grades.
The materials here are designed to be used with videoconferencing platforms for distance education and with interactive whiteboards in the classroom. The activities can also be used if you are creating video lessons for asynchronous lessons.
To use the materials, first watch the overview video for an orientation to our approach to virtual teaching. Then, click on the links below to download lesson templates, peruse our tips for creating engaging lessons, and finally, explore the instructional activities to plan lessons appropriate for your students.
We’re just getting started. We will be adding many more resources for you soon, so check back often!
