As reading groups are getting underway - I'm starting to meet with kids to work on letter recognition and sound practice. I noticed some wandering eyes during group when I was just using the set of flashcards that come with my kit. I use Houghton Mifflin for Kindergarten and decided to make these "ABC" books so everyone in my small group can practice the letters and sounds with them in their own hands. I stapled the pages as 8 1/2 x 11 sized books and am using it is a choral reading warm-up/chant during guided groups.
I have them read the "a a a" or "b b b" as the sound. For the alpfafriend I say it's object (apple/bear/cat) rather than the full name.
A is for apple, /a/a/a/
B is for bear, /b/b/b/
This is pretty specific to using the HM program, but in case you can use it - CLICK HERE for the freebie on google docs.
