A Simple Way to Teach the Alphabet!
Teach your child how to read AND write the alphabet letters.
A Rhyme for each letter makes it easy and fun!
Alphabet Anatomy innovatively personifies the alphabet letters according to their graphic shapes, making the most highly correlated factor in proficient reading — letter knowledge — more easily facilitated. By reciting a fun, simple rhyme, children visualize and recall how each letter looks and sounds; and a major barrier to reading is significantly decreased since children are no longer relegated to memorizing abstract visual symbols.
Rather, the rhymes’ anatomical references, ideally appropriate for young children, allow them to associate letter shapes with shapes they already know.
The alphabet letters are lovable teachers
Coming to life based on their graphics features
Master each letter beginning with rhymes
Learning through play and sharing fun times.
Now you can easily help ensure that your child acquires and retains the vital skills of alphabet recognition and letter knowledge. Recite the rhymes with younger children during play and games to facilitate letter recognition. Use them as a valuable tool for more structured teaching of reading and writing skills. Mastering the alphabet and letter knowledge is effortless, portable, inexpensive, and FUN!
Sure, there are lots of alphabet books out there, but virtually all of them depict representative word pictures or indistinct letters yet lack clear alphabet instruction. With Alphabet Anatomy, parents, teachers, and other caregivers can effectively facilitate and teach these critical early learning skills, including print formation. And, children also gain the multitude of benefits that rhyming provides such as critical thinking and memory skills, phonetic awareness, sound discrimination, and increased vocabulary.
Learning how to write the alphabet letters can be especially frustrating for kids. In addition to providing an easy means for visual and auditory recall of each letter’s sound and shape, the rhymes uniquely present insight on the handwriting strokes required to correctly form each letter. For instance, when reciting letter A’s rhyme (as seen above), your child will know to make a point at the top (letter A’s head) and another handwriting stroke across the middle (letter A’s belt) in order to properly form letter A. Reading and writing knowledge occur simultaneously and inter-relatedly.
Alphabet Anatomy can even help introduce good character traits, presenting more opportunities for engaging your child in literacy rich conversations and activities. Letter C demonstrates compassion as she cares for cats. Letter F helps kids think about a healthy lifestyle with his focus on feeling fit and fabulous. You can visit more letters here.
Our first coloring/workbook is now available, so your child can create art masterpieces while continuing to master letter knowledge, practice writing, and increase early literacy skills.
Your child’s early literacy journey begins at the moment of birth. Remember, there are many ways you can encourage and grow a literacy rich environment to maximize those years (birth through age 5). It’s also when your child’s brain experiences the most rapid growth.
One of the best things you can do is set aside a minimum of 15 minutes per day of reading time. And, Alphabet Anatomy’s busy, lovable letters easily facilitate engaging conversations, which help to greatly boost the benefits of reading aloud.
Watch the Alphabet Anatomy Rap!
“As a preschool teacher I am always looking for ways for my students to develop pre-writing and writing skills. Because of the newer demands of kindergarten, children are pretty much required to know how to already write by the time they step foot into their kindergarten classroom. Alphabet Anatomy shows children how to write each letter…. These instructions give children a way to visually remember how to write each letter and states what sound each letter states. I am very much looking forward to using this book in my classroom. The pictures and the fun descriptions of each letter will even cause the not so eager writer to want to try to make each letter. I think that this is a necessary addition to all preschool books shelves! Even lower elementary classrooms will benefit from this book.”
“The wonderful rhyming descriptions explain how to draw the letters, gives a word to help remember the letter. As a teacher who started out teaching kindergarten I can definitely see the value in having this book on your shelf. If I was teaching kindergarten today I would project one letter at a time, read the rhyme and have the students practice drawing the letter. I think this should be on every kindergarten classroom shelf.”
“The best thing to come along since the ABC song.”
“A must for anyone with small children just learning their letters. School systems could also use this as a tool.”
“Children with learning needs, particularly those who are highly visual learners, will benefit from the design of the characters and how they help one remember how the letter is shaped or written.”
