Level 1 - Learning The Alphabet
The newest Learning The Alphabet books were uploaded March 3, 2021. Student work is divided into two books, Book 1 and Book 2.
- These books are designed for students who are learning the alphabet for the first time. They will work well with young students, but they may also be used for older students who need extra help learning the alphabet. I have not used these books with adult students who are learning English as a second language, but I think these books would be a good starting point for them.
- The print awareness lessons, which were previously included at the end of the books, are integrated into the regular workbook pages. You don't need to plan when to teach them. Just read each print awareness lesson aloud to the students when you reach it in the book.
- Each new alphabet letter is taught over a period of three days. A chart is included in each book showing which pages to complete with the students each day. This sequence is set up to assist teachers with planning. However, teachers may choose to change the pace at which the pages are taught as desired.
- Daily lesson plans and other information for the teacher are included at the end of each book.
- Brief instructions for the teacher are included on each student page.
- Students trace large and small letters in their books to learn correct letter formation. In these books, the letters are not placed on handwriting lines. This will make it easier for students to learn the letter shapes for the first time.
- At this level, students are not required to write the letters on separate sheets of paper. They will trace new letters and review letters on the workbook pages included in the books.
