The Amazing Action Alphabet phonics program review and give-away

I like to provide an organized phonics program to my students throughout the school year as well as natural opportunities for introducing and exploring the sounds of letters. Last year, for our organized phonics program, I implemented the simple but super fun program called The Amazing Action Alphabet ….

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Amazing Action Alphabet flip chart comes with a CD of songs to sing-along with each letter of the alphabet.  The songs are lively and fun but I must confess to you that we did not use the CD along with the chart as suggested. Instead, we played the CD during our center time for the children to listen and sing along with while they played…

For each Letter that is Introduced in the Alphabet Action Flip Chart, there is a specific sound and motion the children are to make. The sound is the sound of the letter and the motion is a physical reinforcer of that letter sound. For example, for the letter C the children held out their hands and moved their fingers to “c, c, cut!”…

Because we are a mixed age group class of children ranging from ages 3 to Pre-K, we needed to keep our phonics program short and active so everyone enjoyed the experience. On Pre-K day only, we would quickly review all the letters with the children and they amazed me at how they easily remembered every sound and every action…

We gradually worked our way through all the letters throughout the school year and even did a very quick run-through of all the letter sounds and actions for our parents on graduation day…


We will certainly be using The Amazing Action Alphabet flip chart and CD again this next year in my classroom!

 

Disclosure: I received The Amazing Action Alphabet flip chart and CD to review and provide this give-away. I was not compensated in any other way and all opinions are 100% my own.
