Clip to ScrapBook #8

I use HWWT and follow the way they introduce their letters. The last couple of years I paired the printing activity with making an alphabet book to help us practice our letter sounds - we printed the letter, wrote words that start with that letter, drew pictures of things that start with that letter, and then did an art activity to go with the letter (like zipper rubbings for Z). I love doing it that way, however the HWWT plus the abc book took a long time to complete and I found I wasn't teaching the proper printing of some letters until late in the year. This year I'm going to try doing just the HWWT printing first and then using the abc book as a review of the printing with a focus on the letter sounds.
