Reading the Alphabet is an incremental, hands-on reading program designed specifically for older preschoolers who already know most of their letters and letter sounds, yet are not ready for a faster paced, Kindergarten curriculum.

This curriculum may also work Kindergartners who are struggling to master basic reading skills or older learners with special needs.

The Skills Covered in this Curriculum Include:

-Review and Application of Letters & Sounds (not in ABC order)

-Introduction and Practice with Beginning Sight Words (such as: the, a, see, I, etc.)

-Phonological & Phonemic Awareness (playing with sounds in words)

-Fine Motor Skills (cutting, gluing, tracing, beginning handwriting-formation of letters)

-Reading/Matching Basic CVC Words (via word families); this starts after the first vowel (a) is introduced in lesson 7

-Math concepts such as one-to-one correspondence, numbers 1-20, and beginning addition and subtraction through hands-on play

Each Lesson Includes:

-an Emergent Reader that applies the letter and sight word

When you get to the CVC word families in Lesson 7, learners use many of the same activities for word families. Sight word review activities are also in those lessons.
