Introduction
W
hen five-year old
Luisa writes her name, she
proudly announces each
letter in turn and carefully
adds a curlicue for good
measure. “It’s cursive,” she
explains. Luisa recognizes
that these lines and shapes
are something special and delights in her growing knowledge of the alphabet.
As Luisa continues to learn about letters, she will develop the alphabet
recognition skills that are essential for learning to read. Luisa is happily on
her way to becoming a reader and building a strong foundation that predicts
future school success.
Teaching
Tip
Pages 1 and 2 of each
packet feature letterformation practice.
For children who are
left-handed, consider
writing the target letter
at the end (right side)
of each practice line to
provide a model they can
easily see as they trace
and write the letters.
Alphabet recognition—knowing the names for letters and the sounds they
represent—begins for many young children with the familiar song, “A, B, C,
D, E, F, G… .” As children sing the alphabet song again and again, they learn
the letter names, an important first step for alphabet recognition. But children
also need to learn the printed form of each letter (uppercase and lowercase,
in and out of sequence) and the most frequent sound each letter represents.
Research shows that speed and accuracy are two important factors in alphabet
recognition. Children who can recognize letters with speed and accuracy
can more efficiently focus on sound-letter relationships as they learn to read
(Adams, 1990; as cited in Blevins, 2006). Over-learning the letters—their
names, shapes, and sounds—is recommended for achieving this goal.
Instant Practice Packets: Alphabet provides the repeated practice children
need to thoroughly learn the letters of the alphabet. These ready-to-go,
reproducible packets—one for each letter—are designed to help children
build a foundation for early reading success. The format and sequence of
activities on the pages support children in working independently.
4
Instant Practice Packets: Alphabet • © 2011 by Joan Novelli & Holly Grundon • Scholastic Teaching Resources
In addition to letter recognition activities, opportunities to practice letter
formation are an important component of each packet. In writing letters of
the alphabet, children begin to notice the different features of letters (such
as height, straight and curved lines, intersecting lines, and loops), which
“significantly helps letter recognition” (Clay, 2002, 2006). From tracing and
writing letters to turning them into works of art, letter formation activities are
built into each page. Additional highlights for each packet include:
Teaching
Tip
Research shows that
“supporting literacy and
language skills in the
first language provides
a base for successful
literacy development in
the second language”
(Snow, Burns, & Griffin,
1998, as cited by
Northwest Regional
Educational Laboratory,
2005). One way to
implement that strategy
using the packets is to
give English Language
Learners opportunities
to teach others how to
say the letter names and
words for pictures in their
first language.
• multisensory activities that reflect research about the
way young children learn—for example, the hand-sign
component of each packet adds a kinesthetic connection
• activities that provide necessary practice with letter
recognition in isolation as well as in the context of words
• key pictures and words that help children learn letter-sound
relationships
• predictable text that features each target letter to help
children take the next step in becoming readers
• kid-friendly layouts that keep interest high
Teaching With the
Alphabet Packets
T
he packets in this book are organized in alphabetical order, but can be
used in any sequence to meet your instructional needs. To prepare the packets
for use, photocopy the pages and staple to bind. Introduce the packets by
“walking” through each page with children. Review each activity and model
how to complete it. The packets allow children to work at their own pace, and
taking time in advance to review directions will facilitate their independence.
Following is an overview of each page.
Ivan
Se
pt. 1
Page 1: The first page of each packet introduces the target letter and
provides guided practice with letter formation. In addition, children
explore different letter styles (through a variety of fonts) and take a turn
creating a letter style all their own! (Encourage creativity as children

“design” a new way to write the letter.) They also learn that hand signs are
another way to form letters and can practice making the hand sign for the
target letter. This kinesthetic component helps further reinforce children’s letter
learning experiences.
Teaching
Tip
Instant Practice Packets:
Alphabet offers effective
support for Response
to Intervention (RTI). For
example, children who
do not have adequate
knowledge of the
alphabet and therefore
struggle academically
with reading may benefit
from the systematic
approach the packets
provide—from letterwriting practice that
draws attention to
important features of
each letter to pictureword combinations
that reinforce lettersound relationships.
Additionally, the
formatted practice
pages make it easy
for these learners to
focus on specific skills.

Page 2: The top section of this page gives children
continued practice in letter-writing. At the bottom,
children take a “Letter Walk,” which engages them in
noticing similarities and differences among letters as
they identify uppercase and lowercase examples of the
target letter along a path.
Ivan
Sept.
1
Page 3: With an alphabet-book-like setup, this page
features pictures and words that help children learn
the sound commonly associated with the target letter.
Ivan Sept. 1
Children trace the letter and write it to complete the word
for each picture. To reinforce sound-letter relationships,
encourage children to say the name for each letter as
they trace or write it and the word for the picture. In
the final section on this page, children draw their own
picture to represent the letter and write (or dictate) the
word. Note: In the case of the letter x, the pictures on page
3 illustrate words in which x appears as a final consonant.
(Words with x at the beginning are generally too advanced for this purpose.)
Page 4: “Star Words” introduces children to words that Iva
n Sep
t. 1
begin with (or end with, in the case of the letter x) the
target letter, including many from sight-word vocabulary
lists (such as Dolch and Fry). Children trace the letters
to spell four words, then color the stars to show
which of those words they can read. As an extension,
you might build a wall chart of the Star Words from
each packet. To use the chart, point out and read the
words with children frequently to support acquisition
of sight-word vocabulary. Other features on this page include “Animal ABCs”
and “doodle.” With Animal ABCs, children practice writing the target letter to
complete the name of an animal. The predictable text in this activity encourages
early reading skills. The doodle activity invites children to form the letter, then
have fun transforming it into a picture. This exercise encourages a playfulness
that motivates further learning.

two paper bowls (on the inside) “BIG LETTERS” and “little letters.” Write a few uppercase
and lowercase letters on each bowl to provide visual support. Mix up the uppercase and
lowercase letter cards and have children sort them into the corresponding bowls.
Letter Line Up: Provide either a set of uppercase or lowercase letter cards. Mix up the
cards and have children line them up in alphabetical order. Children can work with a partner,
taking turns to find each letter. If they like, they can use a one-minute (or more) timer

and see how many cards they can place in alphabetical order before time runs out (and
with continued practice, notice how that number grows). Encourage children to sing the
alphabet song as they work to help figure out which letter comes next.
Before and After: Copy two sets of cards (either uppercase or lowercase), each on a
different color paper. Spread out one set of cards faceup on a table. Shuffle the second set
and stack the cards facedown. Have children take turns selecting the top card from the
stack, placing it faceup, naming the letter, then searching the cards that are spread out to
find the letter that comes before and the letter that comes after it. (For A and Z, children
can find the two letters that come immediately after or before). When finished, children
return the “before and after” cards to the table and place the card from the stack to
the side.
Alphabet Mini-Book (pages 120-122)
This interactive mini-book is designed to extend learning for each packet. To prepare
the mini-book, write the target letter in the box provided on the cover and on pages 1–3

Page 4: The activity on this page strengthens alphabet and sequencing skills. To
prepare, write the target letter in one of the four boxes, keeping in mind that children
will fill in the letters that come just before and/or after. For example, if the target letter is
A, write the letter A in the first box. Children will then write the next three letters. If the
target letter is Z, write that letter in the last box so that children can fill in the preceding
three letters. You can write target letters such as D, E, and F in any of the boxes since
there are at least three letters before and after that children can fill in. [Note: You might
program this page before making copies for children.]
