My team is having a discusion about how much we should teach the alphabet in the first grade. We use the Treasures Reading series. It suggests a review of three weeks. We felt that was too much so we went down to two weeks. Our 4K and Kdg programs have increased the students knowledge of the alphabet. We are incorporating an intervention program next year for everyone in the school. So. . . we were thinkng what if the 1-2 students who really need reteaching of the alphabet do it during intervention rather than the whole class. What do you think of this idea and what do you do to teach the alphabet and for how long?
Kindergarten Teachers we could use your input too! Are your students secure in the alphabet? Will they need a review?
