Cognitive and developmental psychologist Adams (cognitive, linguistic, and psychological sciences, Brown U.) offers primary grade teachers 57 activity-based lessons, materials, and assessments to help children recognize and write each letter in both uppercase and lowercase and know the primary sounds each represents. Lessons are designed to reflect the Common Core State Standards and are developmentally sequenced, from getting to know the alphabet, to writing uppercase and lowercase, to introducing letters and sounds. Each has a warm-up and review, new instruction, and small-group or individual activities, and instructions on special materials and preparation are provided at the beginning of each unit.
