It's More than ABC...

Hello, Everybody!

Don't you love the look of pride on a child's face when she proudly announces that she knows the whole alphabet and sings the "ABC Song" to you ..."elemenopee" and all? It's a huge step on the road to literacy!

As teachers, we know that there's a lot more to knowing the alphabet than just singing the song! There are so many ways to "know" the alphabet! Here's a way to share that information with parents. It's set up as a checklist, so it might even be put up on someone's fridge as a handy reminder of learning yet to be accomplished. This would be a nice hand-out for Open House, Meet the Teacher, or parent-teacher conferences. Click on the checklist to go to google docs for your free copy.




The guide for parents is part of "I Can't Believe I Know the Whole Alphabet", a newly posted product at my TPT store. It's a collection of alphabet resources for PreK and kindergarten teachers, and includes 37 pages of cards, charts, sequencing mats, and games.

  1. Linda, that checklist looks great! I can't wait to share it with my parents. Thank you for leaving such a lovely comment on my blog. Sometimes I'm not sure what people are feeling about my posts, so it's nice to hear a little feedback. Also, I thought I was already following you, but I must have done something wrong. Now I'm officially following you. :)

    Hope to talk to you soon...

  4. Thank you so much for the checklist. Do you know how many parents tell me their child knows the alphabet because he/she can sing the song? This will help explain exactly what the child needs to know. It is terrific.
