We will eat in the dining room - orange
I like gravy - red
I don't like gravy - orange

This Alphabet Book is formatted to be printed back to back in landscape orientation. After printing, it is folded in half and stapled. Each student pastes or draws pictures on the right hand page that represents the sound of the letter that is on the left hand page.
Through making the book and reading it frequently, the students learn to make letter symbol to sound associations that he/she will apply during reading and writing work.

Each student can keep a copy of this chart handy as an aide for quick reference during reading and writing activities.
