Developed by renowned reading expert Marilyn Jager Adams, this playful, highly engaging curriculum supplement is a must for teachers of preschool through kindergarten, as well as primary grade teachers of students who still need help with alphabetic basics. You'll get 56 activity-based lessons that help children recognise and write each letter in both upper- and lowercase forms and know the primary sound each letter represents. Enhance your early literacy instruction with this fun and effective curriculum supplement, and give children a solid foundation of alphabet knowledge they'll build on for years as they become confident readers and writers.
