Suitable for all early childhood educators and practitioners, Letter Links is all about the alphabetic principle from a child development point of view. It highlights the importance of using symbols in preschool along with printed letters. Letter Links takes children's natural interest in learning to write their own name as an entryway to teaching them letter recognition skills, letter-sound correspondence, and letter/word writing by using nametags and letter-linked images. The authors also provide eight specific teaching strategies. Letter Links outlines the research behind the learning system and provides detailed examples of 64 initial letter sounds represented by 26 letters. These are the letter combinations you need to introduce the book's more than 25 fun-filled activities that involve the alphabetic principle, phonological awareness, sense of word, and vocabulary.DeBruin-Parecki, Andrea is the author of 'Letter Links Alphabet Learning With Children's Names' with ISBN 9781573791434 and ISBN 1573791431.
