You should take in an alphabet chart for this lesson, this chart should have pictures of various objects beginning with the various letters of the alphabet (pre-scholars alphabet books would work well in this situation).

Teacher: (Read the alphabet list slowly, pointing to pictures as you speak. The following list is just an example, make sure to use something with pictures if possible. )

  • A as in “apple”
  • B as in “boy”
  • C as in “car”
  • D as in “dog”
  • E as in “ear”

  • P as in “people”
  • Q as in “question”
  • R as in “red”
  • S as in “sure”
  • T as in “truck”
  • U as in “unique”
  • V as in “video”
  • W as in “wow”
  • X as in “xerox”
  • Y as in “yes”

  • C as in “car”
  • D as in “dog”
  • E as in “ear”

  • T as in “truck”
  • U as in “unique”
  • V as in “video”
  • W as in “wow”
  • X as in “xerox”
  • Y as in “yes”
  • Z as in “zebra”

Student(s): (Repeat the above with the teacher)

Part II: Spelling Names

Teacher: Please write your name. (Model the following new class instruction by writing your name on a piece of paper. )

Teacher: Please write your name. (You may have to gesture to students to take a piece of paper out and write their names.)

Teacher: My name is Ken. K – E – N (Model spelling your name.). What is your name?(Gesture to a student.)

Student(s): My name is Gregory. G – R – E – G – O – R – Y
