The Alphabet Curriculum is for the mom who wants an all-in-one low prep homeschooling resource for setting solid foundations for reading success.
This bundle focuses on letters, phonological awareness skills (pre-reading skills), and phonics. It uses a variety of science-backed teaching methods and developmentally appropriate learning materials in the form of fun games/activities that go far beyond paper and pencil learning.
The entire bundle will include 26 learning packets- one for each letter plus a user guide with tips and strategies for teaching.

This bundle is good for Pre-K and/or Kinder or as extended practice material for grade 1 or 2.
I will start uploading each letter packet starting in October.
While there is ample variety of activities for practicing each skill, all letter packets will be designed on the same pattern so your child can get into a learning rhythm- with increasing difficulty as required (e.g. phonological & Phonemic awareness activities, phonics).
(This product is in the creation process and your feedback or special requests are more than welcome at email@example.com.
P.S. If there is one thing you take away from here, let it be that teaching your child phonological awareness/ pre-reading skills alongside letters/phonics is the best way to prevent later reading struggles. Even with an M.A in Eng. Language & Lit. and 7 years of teaching experience, I wasted too much time teaching my own child to read through the 3 cueing system, i.e. guessing through pictures and context, heavy focus on learning sight words, etc... but his struggles and more study taught me that guessing and memorizing aren't ''reading'' skills- what happens when there are no pictures, no more space in the brain to memorize?? I learned that going slow to solidify these basics esp phonological awareness skills is the faster way to teach reading.)
I wish you good luck! Thanks for stopping by.
