The alphabet is the foundation of our language.  Without the alphabet we wouldn't be able to read, write, or talk to one another.  Below are resources that will help you learn more about the alphabet including sounds and pictures

Scenario Mission

Teacher at chalkboard

Pretend that you have to teach a foreign child the english language.  The best way to start teaching the child is to
show and explain the alphabet to them, but it could
be helpful to put a picture and word with each letter
to better explain the concept.  Each letter should be
covered for the child to fully understand.

Mission Steps
1.  Go to the website and look at
each letter with its word and picture.

2.  Write the letter, word and picture for each
letter of the alphabet on a separate sheet of paper.

3.  Make these papers into an alphabet book
by stapling or binding it together with string.

4.  Practice teaching someone (ex. classmate, parent, teacher,friend) so you would be able to fully explain the
concept of letters and the alphabet correctly to a foreign child.
