Teaching the Letter A is where most schools start. When children learn to read they will need a lot of different activities and books, the letter A is no exception. I like to make it fun, so the first place to start are lesson plans so that all the ideas and “how to’s” are in one place. These lesson plans include activity ideas for fieldtrips art, P.E., and all the normal math, reading, science and social studies concepts. They are several pages long so there is lots to choose from to do.
The next place to go is books. I love having lots of books for children to read and enjoy. Children’s books can be very expensive. They are usually only eight pages for beginning readers, but often coast $8 or more. I designed children’s books to be downloaded. These books can be printed double sided, then cut across the middle, down the middle and a staple for a children’s book. I have created books for the ABC’s, numbers, social studies and science. They are eight pages, put into two sheets of paper.
The next thing I needed for teaching the letter A was worksheets. You need worksheets to teach most concepts because they help the child to do something. These worksheets help with handwriting, phonics and sight words. They help the child to use what they are learning and be able to remember it.
Teaching children can be difficult, but is can also be VERY rewarding. I hope you can use these simple tools to make teaching a rewarding experience for you and your child. Always remember to keep it fun, because when they’re laughing, they’re learning, so always Teach With Giggles. Written by Raeann Hansen 2019.
