Unit at a Glance:
Activities incorporate the four language domains of listening, speaking, reading, and writing to engage students in the instruction and practice of each letter of the alphabet.

  • Naming Letters
    Students are introduced to new letters through meeting the alphabet puppet, reciting an alphabet rhyme, and taking part in a short lesson where they learn the two letter forms (capital and lowercase).
  • Writing Letters
    Students learn the correct way to form letters by tracing upper- and lowercase letters in the air during a short lesson. Afterwards, they can use their take-home puppets to trace and write the new letters on their own.
  • Placing Letters in the Alphabet
    Students practice locating letters in the alphabet by singing the alphabet song and clapping when they get to the correct letter. You can also use the alphabet puppets to make a bulletin board that students can refer to as they complete alphabet activities.
  • Identifying Letter Sounds
    Students' letter/sound recognition is further reinforced by reciting a chant and participating in a picture card activity.
  • Reviewing Letters
    Take-home puppets allow students to practice letter names, sounds, and formations at home.
