It's hard, but it works!

I read the 2006 edition, and it is close to the new edition, but not exact, it has a lot of "after experience" advice that they learned after teachers tried it out in their classrooms. I would first recommend checking around to see if you can borrow the book or check it out from the library.

I'd recommend a lot of the same things that you did with your older kids for the first grade. I do rainbow writing, stamps, plastic letters, "read it, build it, write it" and the like with my kindergartners.
I know the first grade teacher also has some activities that involve sorting words alphabetically from the word wall.
Write around the room is also a LOT of fun for the little kids.
