Learning to recognize the uppercase and lowercase letters of the alphabet is one of the most important first steps in learning how to read.
Alphabet Books and their accompanying resources help students learn to identify, name, and write the letters of the alphabet. Along with printable and projectable books for every letter of the alphabet there are flashcards, Chants, and Letter Formation Worksheets to help teachers, parents, and caregivers teach the alphabetic principle.
Why Use Alphabet Books
The alphabetic principle teaches that spoken language is represented by written words that are made up of varying combinations of letters, and that these letters and combinations of them make up all of the sounds in spoken language.
Attaching sounds to the letters and learning to write them paves the way to successful reading and writing.
How to Use Alphabet Books
Focus on the pictures that represent the target sound in each book. Featured in the second part of each book is a sentence such as "A is for apple."
Students can practice concepts about print such as one-to-one correspondence, tracking print left to right, and using illustrations to confirm word meaning.
Have students make their own books or add pages to their printable Alphabet Books.
Use the English Alphabet Assessments to help you plan instruction.
