Here’s another emergent reader “just the right size” alphabet booklet.
Besides the 4-on-a-page template, I’ve also included an 8-on-a-page pattern, so that you can make an “Itty Bitty Alpha-bits” booklet if you want.
Using the pictures as a guide, children read the page, trace the letters, write the letters, then color the picture.
Afterwards, they cut the pages into 1/4ths (grab that teachable moment to review fractions if you're studying them) collate the pages and then staple their booklet together.
When everyone has completed their booklet, read it together as a whole group to cover concepts of print.
There’s also a "Color Me" alphabet poster.
Comes on a full page, as well as 2-on-a-page.
Children can do this all at once, or keep the poster in their writing journals, and color only the letters that they have studied & mastered.
You can also use the posters to play an “I Spy a Letter” game.
Give children an M&M or other manipulative.
Call out a letter; children cover it with their playing piece.
You can see at a glance who is having difficulty, which makes this a quick, easy & fun way to whole group assess.
I'm Diane from Teach With Me, wishing you lots of energy for those busy days.
