This lesson gives learners the opportunity to practise different aspects of the alphabet.

Rachael Ro

In this lesson, learners will practise the alphabet, the letter names and writing upper-case and lower-case letters 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.


To develop and practise (depending on stages chosen):

  • vocabulary: alphabet letter names, words which start with an upper-case letter, wild animals
  • integrated skills: listening, speaking, reading, writing


Younger primary (7–9 years)


90 minutes approximately (depending on stages chosen)

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 .
