Reviewing the alphabet through songs, games and activities helps a child learn how to identify letters automatically. Without this they will have difficulty in matching sounds to letters, identifying initial and final sounds and blending sounds together (all the skills needed in reading and writing!)
One group listened to 3 funny alphabet stories on the iPad then tried completing an alphabet dot to dot of a coconut tree. Another group rhymed letter names with pictures. Meanwhile, the final group participated in a STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Mathematics) activity. Their objective was to build a three-dimensional Chicka Chicka Boom Boom! alphabet tree that can hold the most alphabet letters. It was interesting to watch students work collaboratively and be persistent in trying new designs when the first one failed- exactly what we want to see from ISS students!
