Alphabet Soup

Alphabet Soup is an early literacy program that uses stories, songs and crafts to learn about each letter of the alphabet.  The program focuses on 4 main areas:

  • letter recognition
  • listening skills
  • print motivation
  • narrative skills

I use the following series to structure the program:

The stories are a little big longer than I would normally chose for a read-aloud with this age group (3-5), but the purpose is to prepare children to sit and listen for longer periods of time, a skill that will be required once they enter kindergarten.
