LEARNING THE ALPHABETS

 

 

The alphabets are the building blocks of language. It’s very important that the kids in this class begin to identify their alphabets. It will be practically impossible to teach sounds if the children cannot identify their letters.

For the children to become literate, they must be able to recognise each letter, both in order and out of order, and  know the sounds connected to each letter.

To facilitate speedy learning, we advocate for few letters at a time. Every letter that is introduced, the children should be able to recognise it, know the sound and know how to write it.

 

 

 RECITING THE 26 ALPHABETS ( letter names)

The children must have learnt how to recite the alphabet in their previous class. But you can be rest assured that they will be quite a number of the kids who can not recite the alphabets to the end. Some will be mixing up the letters.

It’s important to start by ensuring accurate recitation of the alphabets

 

 

  • Teacher says : Can you say your letters?

 

  • Pupils’ response : Yes, I can say my letters

 

  • Teacher says : Say it for me

 

 

ü Pupils’ response: a b c d e f g h i
j k l m n o p q r
s t u v w x y z

 

(It’s very important you have the letters written on several parts of the classroom, so that they children can be seeing it while they read. It helps in their recognition of letters)
