Finger follows are a great warmup for small group literacy instruction. I begin all of my small group with some type of alphabet warm up. I always use the vowels in this set for a warm up. However, sometimes I will review the entire alphabet with a group.
Directions: Students read “Aa is for apple” then trace the dotted line while saying /a/ /a/ /a/ /a/ /a/. When they come to the apple they say “apple”. The tactile learning is beneficial to those struggling readers.
