ABC Foundations for Young Children

Young children's knowledge of letter names and sounds is the best predictor of their reading and spelling progress in school—but studies show that many children still struggle with alphabet knowledge at the end of first grade. Now there's a fun and affordable way to answer the call for effective alphabet instruction, without changing your whole curriculum or investing in expensive teaching materials and training.

Developed by renowned reading expert Marilyn Jager Adams, this playful, highly engaging curriculum supplement is a must for teachers of preschool through kindergarten, as well as primary grade teachers of students who still need help with alphabetic basics.
