Utilize The Alphabet Learning Activities Kit book and the online ALPHABET VIDEOS (see below) to teach students their letter names and sounds, as well as writing every letter of the alphabet (letter formation). Please note: This alphabet system is utilized in the Nancy Fetzer’s Writing Curriculum Manual and the Nancy Fetzer’s Reading Curriculum manual.

VIDEOS

Below are two the two different categories of instruction for the alphabet: 1) The Alphabet Chart Video and 2) Letter Formation Videos.

The Alphabet Chart has one video for students to learn their letter sounds and letter names. The Letter Formation videos require students progress through fourteen videos in order to master writing every letter of the alphabet.

Teach children to write the letters of the alphabet through these fourteen child-friendly, interactive videos. These unique videos are sequenced in order of instruction. Students repeatedly watch a video, master the skills, then progress to the next video. In order to simplify letter writing, students are first taught twelve shapes. Once they master the shapes, they then use different combinations of those shapes to write any letter of the alphabet. Whether learning the twelve shapes or specific letters of the alphabet, the students first practice writing the shapes with body motions and sky writing ( large motor activities), they then progress to whiteboard writing, and finally paper and pencil (fine motor activities).
