This card deck of double-sided letter cards has endless possibilities for use – spelling words, writing names, fill-in-the-blank words, and more. There is at least one letter card for every letter of the alphabet; more commonly used letters have more cards. Each card has an indicator label in the corner, telling the letter on the reverse side. A quick reference key is also included. Cards are oversized (3.5" X 5") for easier viewing and handling. Set includes 53 letter cards and 2 instruction cards for ideas of use, including ideas for both higher and lower functioning levels. Consider for all MindStart activity levels.

I used the card set with end-stage dementia residents in a large group setting. The activity ended up being like a group game of Scrabble. I had each person choose a card -"Pick a card, any card" - like a magic trick, and I kept an eye on making sure there were enough vowels. I placed these on a whiteboard shelf and then we found as many words as possible from the chosen cards, which I wrote on the whiteboard. I found that it worked really well and the residents really engaged with it. Some weren't quite up to the task but were very happy to sit and listen, laugh, even throw in words which weren't relevant. When lunchtime was announced the "Duchess" commented that "we were just starting to have fun". Which I found very reassuring. I think sight-words are still within their long-term memory ready to be plucked and given an airing.
