Is there a word or term other than ‘exemplar’ for the educational cards used in primary classrooms to teach English? These are the:

'A' is for 'Apple'

Or for the cards which show how to write a letterform which tends to line the walls of some classrooms.

'A' 'a', 'B' 'b', etcetera

I am looking for a general use term or phrase which elementary teachers would refer to these and not for product names used to purchase them.

  • Are you looking for another adjective, or the product name?

  • Sorry, not looking to buy them, just curious as to what they’re normally called. Were it a book or journal I would assume ‘exemplar’. I’m uncertain if grade-school teachers use a different term. Will edit to clarify.

According to this teaching catalog, these are called wall cards:

This other website, which sells them as vintage, also refers to the following as wall cards:

Finally, here's a wall card that shows the letterform:

Another option, which seems to fit the original idea you posted, are alphabet lines:

  • Edited -- I found something which may fit better.

  • Alphabet lines could work as it helps convey a sort of homey anachronism also present in the story. Thanks.

Flash cards? Those are generally the size of cue cards or notecards, though, so I am not sure if you mean something larger.
