This Getting Started presentation is designed for those first ten days of first grade. It would also be a great review in kindergarten at the end of the year. The presentation reviews the formation of alphabet letters and includes an introduction to phonics and the writing process. There are PDF step-by-step directions for Days 1-10 for each slide that will guide you through the presentation. Included are two different formats for the presentations. A few slides (pages) will be the same for each day’s presentation, such as the Days of the Week slide. One version is for those teachers who use PowerPoint and the other version is for those teachers who have SmartBoards (4:3 View and 16:9 Views are included). For the most effective use of the unit, you will need access to a computer connected to a projector or television. There are 14 pages of worksheets and a student booklet, My Alphabet Book. The booklet has 2 different formats. The whole page version is for each letter to be on a separate page, and the half page version has 2 letters on the same page. It is designed to be cut in half and stapled together. If you look carefully at the previews for Day 1and Day 9 in Look Inside, you will get a better understanding of the unit.
