If you have read Jan Richardson’s book: The Next Step in Guided Reading, you know that in Chapter 3 she talks about the Pre-A reader … or early emergent reader and the use of a letter tracing book for fostering alphabet recognition, phonemic awareness and proper letter formation. Dr. Richardson states that this type of tracing is the fastest and easiest way for students to master letter identification skills.
This letter-tracing book is ideal for Pre-A readers who cannot yet easily recognize at least 40 letters. The pages for the letter-tracing book should be printed, laminated and cut apart. I like to put them together with two rings for easy use and storage or you can use a binding machine.
This packet includes a color and black and white version of the book, directions for how to use the book and a letter identification assessment and data collection sheet.
Richardson states that consistency is important for pre-emergent readers, so this set of letter tracing cards will work best when paired with coordinating alphabet resources.
