Alphabet Tales

Combine stories, images & actions and you get a unique way to help your visual, kinesthetic & auditory learners remember their letters and sounds! Alphabet Tales (sc, 110 pp, 8.5" x 8.5") reads like a story book. Children learn letters/sounds and the shapes of upper/lower case letters as they relax and enjoy the stories. There is no pressure to memorize here. Visual learners will connect the stories to the letters and your auditory kiddos will do the same. Illustrations are soft and colorful. Read this to your pre-K children to introduce the alphabet. Brief lesson plans using all 3 of the components listed below are found in the front of this book. I like how they give the teacher a guideline and some tips without putting it into a complicated lesson. This book starts with "The Story of Aain which Abner meets the ants" and has many more stories covering the entire alphabet. Alphabet Teaching Cards (26 cards, 5.5" x 4") have color images on one side which incorporate the letters, such as "Kyle and Katie Kicker, keeping up their arms" which shows the letter K/k with heads, hands and feet (walking in profile.) On the back of each card you see the writing tip ("Make a thin man, put your pencil on the belly button and make a short slide going up and away from you") and a follow up activity using your whole body (act like you are kicking a ball and make a K with your body.) Writing the Visual, Kinesthetic & Auditory Alphabet (32 pp, 5" x 8.5") is a multi-sensory resource designed to help you teach children their letters. Learn hand motions for each letter, tips on forming letters, activities to deepen learning and tips for preventing backwards letters. You see illustrated hand motions for each letter that are quite clever and easy to learn and do. They use the same terms in all 3 products, such as "make a thin man" means to draw a straight line. I found the motions to be logical and easy to use. The reinforcement activities can be a body movement, a drawing, or collecting things from around the house that start with a certain sound/letter. If you have a right brained learner, these books give some really good ideas that can carry over to other subject areas. You may find yourself learning states and capitals using some of the tips you picked up in this program! ~ Sara
