Third Alpabetti Series
Message from Miz Katz N. Ratz, January 14, 2014:
At this time, I recommend the Alphabetti books only for older children -- 4.5 years old and older.
Why? Because the books start with letters that can be confusing to young children... namely., the letters d, b, g and p.
I am working on a complete revision of the books to make them appropriate for children of all ages. However, because I am also working on the phonics books and a revision of the website, etc., it will be quite a while before I can focus on the Alphabetti books. This is very sad for me because I would rather work on the Alphabetti books -- they are much more fun!
In the meantime, I am leaving the existing Alphabetti books up on the Internet for older children who can navigate past the letters d/b/g/p.
Original introductory text (with age amended):
These easy and fun books teach the remainder of the alphabet -- what we call the "spaghetti stick" letters of the alphabet: l,t,f,r,w,v,k,x,y,y,z plus j and q (taught as "qu"). (See our article on alphabet shapes.) By the end of this series, children will know the entire lowercase alphabet and will be able to read many words.
Age: 4.5 - 6 years old.
Format: Downloadable e-books to read on-screen or print on your printer.
Activity sheets: Matching handwriting worksheets, coloring pages, flash cards and memory games are included for each book. (All for free!)
