  • Alphabet cards or poster with letters
  • String or ribbon


  • Begin the lesson by introducing the concept of the alphabet and its importance in learning to read and write. Explain that the alphabet is a set of letters used to form words and communicate ideas.

Direct Instruction

  • Display the alphabet cards or flashcards and tell the children the name of each letter as you show it to them.
  • Ask the children to repeat the names of the letters after you.
  • Have the children practice writing the letters on their own alphabet sheets or pieces of paper.

Guided Practice

  • Have the children work in pairs or small groups and give each child a piece of paper and a pencil.
  • Have the children take turns writing the letters of the alphabet on their paper and encouraging each other to write correctly.
  • As the children are writing, walk around to check their work and offer help as needed.

Independent Practice

  • Have the children use their pencils to draw a picture of something that begins with each letter of the alphabet.
  • Encourage the children to use their letters to help them draw their pictures (for example, if they are drawing a picture of a cat, they could use the letter C to draw the cat's tail).


  • Ask the children to share their drawings with the class and say the letter of the alphabet that they used to help them draw their picture.
  • Ask the children to say the alphabet song again if they remember it, or if they don't know it, have them repeat the letters of the alphabet in order.


  • Observe the children as they work on their independent practice project to see if they are able to use the letters of the alphabet to help them draw pictures.
  • Collect the children's independent practice projects and review them to see if they are able to use the letters of the alphabet to help them draw pictures and if they are able to use the correct order for the alphabet.
