Looking for tips? Here is how I use this product :
>This product is designed to fit perfectly in composition notebooks, but can also be used in spiral bound.
>Because there are two pages for each letter I use them as 'day 1' and 'day 2' practice.
>As I introduce a new letter I use the first sheet (day 1). For the first page of each letter students should cut the page in half on the dotted line. They should glue the left side (with the large letters) to the left side of their notebook and the right side (with the pictures) beside the first page. On day 1 students cut, glue, and color and we follow an oral routine. Using their finger to point we begin on the large letters reciting "capital letter a, /a/ /a/ /a/, lowercase letter a /a/ /a/ /a/. Moving to the right side of the page we then recite "/a/ /a/ apple, /a/ /a/ ant, /a/ /a/ alligator" Then, read the sentence at the bottom.
>For day 2, when we are practicing the letter we just learned, students will complete the second page independently in their notebooks. They should cut out each individual box on the dotted lines. The two handwriting boxes should be cut out and glued on the left side of the page. The picture grid and letter hunt should be cut out and glued on the right side. Then, students can complete each box.
>My students keep their alphabet journals in their book boxes and read them throughout the day. These are a GREAT way to build confidence in early readers as they recite the chant we learn together.
