I created this Alphabet Trace Book after reading the chapter "Pre-A and Emergent Guided Reading" in Jan Richardson's "The Next Step in Guided Reading. In this book, it is suggested that if students know less than 40 lower and uppercase letters then they should be tracing the Alphabet EVERY DAY. Print this Alphabet Trace Book in color, cut, and then bind together with a book ring. Students will sit with a tutor every day and use their finger to trace the letters, while saying the letter names. The pictures that are included in this Alphabet Trace Book correspond to Jack Hartmann's "Learning Letter Songs" which would be a great follow up/treat for the student to watch after tracing the letters!
