• Part one of this workbook for preschoolers covers the letters of the alphabet and their sounds.
• Part two reviews the alphabet and encourages children to trace words.
Because this is a workbook for preschoolers who are also learning to read, directions along with scripted questions are given to assist parents and teachers as they introduce the letters and the letter sounds. The italicized words given in the lesson section are the answers to the scripted questions given in the Questions to Ask section.
Also, because preschoolers typically enjoy coloring, black and white illustrations that reinforce the phonetic sounds are included, giving young preschoolers the option to color the fun illustrations. In addition to being fun and enjoyable, the act of coloring helps preschoolers to strengthen the muscles in their fingers and hands and enables children to master handwriting faster.
Note: By design this workbook for preschoolers primarily introduces the short vowel sounds—the vowel sounds to which most children are first introduced as they learn to read CVC words.
