Itchy's Alphabet Spanish Teaching Guide introduces the 27 letter sounds using an order of presentation based on formations. Each letter is introduced through literature. For example, for 'c' es una cueva, we suggest the children's book Vamos a cazar un oso to read a story about a cave. Brenda Larson was unable to find library books about some of the picture cues so she wrote 8 books to accompany the program. The Teaching Guide includes instructions for teaching the sounds and letter formations, phonological awareness activities, follow up activities with black line masters and ways to incorporate the other Itchy's Alphabet products into your lessons.
