• Before children begin handwriting, they should recognize and know the names of the letters. Point out that this page shows all of the letters in the alphabet. Explain that by the time children finish this book, they will be able to write all of these letters!
• Read the letters as children point to each one. Ask a volunteer to read the letters. You may want to sing the ABC song together as children point to the letters.
• Record the words uppercase and lowercase where all can see. Explain that each letter can be written as an uppercase or a lowercase letter. Explain that the red letters are the uppercase letters. Explain that the blue letters are the lowercase.
• Ask children to put their pointer finger of their writing hand on the uppercase letter that begins their first name. As you read through the alphabet, have children raise their hands
if their name begins with the letter read. Confirm each by having the children state and spell their names. Repeat with children’s last names.
• Continue to review the letters by naming random uppercase and lowercase letters and having children put their pointer fingers on each letter stated.
• Ask children to find the letters where the uppercase and lowercase letters look exactly the same except that the lowercase is smaller. (c, o, s, v, w, x, z)
Literacy Connection
Use the uppercase and lowercase letter cards with corresponding graphics on the back as featured in the student book on pages 9–12 to help children develop letter and sound recognition. You may want to laminate the letters before children cut them out to make them more durable for little hands.
Suggested uses include:
• matching uppercase and lowercase letters,
• memory games matching uppercase and lowercase letters or uppercase or lowercase letters with graphics,
• teacher-led classroom activities with children finding letters based on visual or auditory prompts,
• sending letters home with a list of suggested activities, and • as models for children to use during writing.
