Level up teaching the alphabet with alphabet decodable books! Decodable readers aren’t just for students who are reading words. Alphabet decodable books are a great way to work on concepts of print, letter sounds and beginning sounds, and vocabulary in preschool, pre-K, or kindergarten.
These alphabet books are TRUE alphabet decodable readers. They do NOT ask students to read large words that are not decodable to them. Rather, students will be reading letters and pictures.
To use these alphabet books, students will point to each page and read the letter sounds and then say the picture – /b/, /b/, book.
This will help students understand that letters in print represent sounds that we read. It also helps students learn beginning sounds and vocabulary.
Vocabulary words are included on the back of each book. Use the vocabulary to do a picture preview before reading, and then use them to review letter sounds after reading. You can have students point to the letter and then picture and say – Bb, balloon, /b/.
These alphabet decodables are an easy double-sided print and fold design! Directions for printing or copying double-sided are included. No stapling or cutting required!
