I am a retired EC teacher of older kids. A friend wants me to tutor her incoming K student prior to fall. Is there a specific order the alphabet is taught with upper/lowercase? I was planning to focus on her name to begin with( it's a double name) so she will get 9 letters there. I used a lot of tactile items when I taught EC students to help reinforce their knowledge. Anymore suggestions from regular ed?

I teach young children, and they learn letters and especially letter sounds using the Leapfrog Letter Factory (cost $12). I skip the intro and go straight to Letter A and then we watch as long as their attention spans last!

I also can't say enough good things about Heidi songs letters and sounds CD ($15 for each CD or DVD on her website).

www.heidisongs.com

As you listen, you can write the letter because the songs are all about how the letter is written, as well as the name and sound.
She also has numbers 0 to 20 on other CDs. Again, a fabulous resource.
Heidi is a kindergarten teacher and reading specialist.

wonderful websites I also use are:

www.thisreadingmama.com
www.themeasuredmom.com
www.prekinders.com
www.teachpreschool.com

Good luck!
