- The lesson is adaptable to each class based on their academic ability and level

Materials

Steps!

1) Put the alphabet strip in front of students

2) Place the counter over one letter and picture

3) Have students draw the letter (upper and lowercase) on their white board

4) Students will demonstrate the sound that belongs to that particular letter

5) If students wrote the letter correct, they can let the mouse eat the letter (erase the letter)

6) Repeat until the students go through the alphabet

Adaptations

1) Separate students into partners. Have students get into partners and do the work station. The students can time each other to increase fluency.


2) Add words. To further develop the work station, have students write a word that begins with the selected letter. This will help students start to see the relationship between letters and words.
