This is a 4 Week ABC Books Thematic Literacy Unit that incorporates Common Core Standards!
This thematic study is organized and colorized week by week and includes a contents page. The wonderful part about it is you can do any week at any time! You do not have to follow any particular order. You may also choose to do just one, two, or three of the thematic categories instead of all four. All pages are numbered to help you keep organized!
Week One: Uppercase/Lowercase Match (Yellow)
Week Two: Letter Recognition (Green)
Week Three: Initial Letter Sound (Blue)
Week Four: Letter Sound Match (Gold)
As a BONUS I have created 4 Literacy Centers! Each Literacy Center corresponds to one of the four areas covered in this ABC Books Thematic Literacy Unit. Just print, cut, laminate, and they are ready to go! There is even an instruction page and a Literacy Center Label to mount on the outside of a large envelope for each Literacy Center.
In addition, there is a whole group activity or game described after reading each book, prior to beginning the printable worksheet.
The following activities include printables and lots of opportunities for phonetic spelling (AKA invented spelling):
Matching uppercase to lowercase letters
Printing uppercase and lowercase letters
Differentiate matching and non-matching uppercase/lowercase letters
Writing names with beginning letter uppercase, remainder lowercase
Recognizing A to Z
Differentiate between letters and numbers
Matching letter/sound invented spelling
Writing a grocery list for given letters of the alphabet
Putting letters in alphabetical order
Fill in missing letters
Making a book from a template “My ABC Book”
Matching beginning sounds with pictures
Differentiate words that are the same
Each week has a detailed Sharing (“Show and Tell”) assignment. Also included is a book list with authors for each week’s category.
All activities incorporate the Common Core Standards. I also have Common Core Poster Sets and Common Core “I can…” Checklists with a Chicka Chicka Boom Boom Theme and an Apple Theme in my TpT Store that would go perfectly with this thematic unit!
