In this lesson, learners will practise the alphabet, the letter names and sounds and writing upper and lower case through a song and various games. For extension, they will watch a story about animals for every letter of the alphabet, and work as a class to produce an alphabet wall frieze or a picture dictionary.

Hi I need professional advice. I'm going to open an institution for young kids, but I have no experience how to teach them English as second language. Id there any teacher who can help me in this regard? Where should I start my curriculum?

In my internship, I did not have an opportunity to teach alphabet for the first grade pupils. It upset me very much. But to my luck I found this lesson plan.
It is a very interesting lesson plan. After reading it, I can say that I have learned new methods of teaching alphabet .

Very important I wish you all the best it is a very interesting and important project.
