Durable and double-sided tabletop Alphabet Chart to teach and support letter formation of capital and lower case letter shapes correctly positioned on writing lines.
Linking letter formation to the ‘sounds’ (not letter ‘names’ at first) supports learning the code as a phonics sub-skill for both reading and spelling.
Children see capital letters in books, environmental print and at the beginning of their own names. They need to know that lower case letters and capital letters are both code for the same sounds.
Note: Teach letter ‘names’, however, when introducing the alphabet and alphabetical order, not when learning about the alphabetic code for reading and spelling. (See our Alphabetic Code Charts HERE).
Teachers need to distinguish the differences, and different roles, of the alphabetic code and the alphabet.
