This reading readiness workbook teaches the identification of the ABC's, printing of the letters, both capital and small. It introduces beginning sounds, but doesn't test this skill. The next level, the easy first grade workbook, "Wise Owl's First Phonics and First 100 Sight Words" will reteach the beginning sounds and test that skill.
All worksheets use a multi-sensory approach to teaching each letter.
At the beginning of the workbook, there's a story to read called "Alphatalk Street'."
In that story, a little girl named Emma takes a walk and meets every letter of the alphabet. After reading this story to the children two times, the children begin the workbook. Characters from the "Alphatalk Street" story are used in the worksheets and that is why you read the story a couple of times before starting the worksheets,
