A to Z Picture Activities for Literacy

Phonics and Vocabulary
for Emerging Readers

A to Z Picture Activities for Literacy is a beginning literacy practice book that gives students an enjoyable way to improve phonics and vocabulary skills from A to Z. Whimsical illustrations highlight simple sentences, beginning grammar, and 888 high-frequency words in exercises that appeal to emerging readers of all ages. The labeled drawings on each A to Z scene are similar to those in a picture dictionary that students can use as a daily reference for writing and spelling.

The units begin with facing pages that show words beginning with the letter and explores their meanings. Then it explores the phonics of the letter – the sounds it makes. Next each alphabetic unit presents vocabulary in topic areas (lexical sets) – Animals, the Body, Colors, Days, Eating, Fruit, Groceries, Holidays, Illness, Jobs, the Kitchen, Music, Numbers, Sports, Time, Vegetables, and others.

It is an ideal book for ESL tutors, classroom teachers, or individual self-paced learners. An accompanying audio CD and audio script provides detailed listening and pronunciation practice.
