The Alphabet Monster is a poem by Robert Heidbreder and is included in the Literacy place program but it is also an excellent starting point for a literacy block to introduce the alphabet, to bring in literacy with a monster flare, or as an excellent Halloween week literacy block in your Daily 5 routine.
This resource contains
a lesson plan to introduce the block during whole class gathering time;
three centers with directions and all necessary sheets for the students,
and a cover for your class book.
All you need to add is access to your class library for "Read to Self" and "Read to Someone"!
