This ABC book is perfect to work with preschool or kindergarten students individually, small or large groups. Guided reading can look differently depending on the classroom, students or skill level.
I like to use them in both big and small groups. Many different skills can be targeted…Letter ID, Sound ID, Color Words and Sight Word recognition.
Handwriting can also be practiced with this book as multiple letters are on each page for tracing.
Children can practice reading foundational skills as they touch the first letter in the sentence, touch each word as it’s being read and identifying the period at the end of the sentence.
This is also perfect for following direction, “color the apple red”, “Color the cat brown”, “circle the word is”, “put a box around the period.”
All of these skills are connected to the Common Core State Standards.
