Everything you need to teach 26 letters in 26 days! Plus, you will get your kids beginning to read!!
There are detailed instructions for using this unit including: ideas about managing small groups, a list of materials you will need, ideas for storing and preparing the materials, and ways to individualize the sequence of letters taught for your students.
You will also find detailed lesson plans in which almost every Common Core Reading Foundational skill is taught. A list of these standards is provided. You will also find a suggested schedule. Detailed step by step small group lesson plans are included with visuals.
You will need to assess and perhaps progress monitor your students. You will find assessment tools, easy to prepare printables, and directions to remediate or move on with your students after teaching the alphabet.
Another option this unit gives you is to print in color or black and white.
The student activities will have your kids flipping with joy. The puppets and songs will add so much fun to your circle time. Everything you need for your small group instructional time and independent practice is provided.
Plus, what your students do at school will have a home connection. A letter to parents tells them how to use the puppets and directions for a nightly scavenger hunt. Students will also begin reading nightly.
I will be posting videos and pictures of my students working through the alphabet to help provide professional development each week. You will be amazed at how quickly your students learn their letters and begin reading!
