FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON - “Alphabet Writing Video - Aa - Free!!”

by A Turn to Learn
Pre-Kindergarten - 1st Grade

Teach your students the right way to write their uppercase and lowercase letters with these engaging videos! These 5 minute long videos will have your students "reading" along with a catchy poem that will help them remember the way to properly write their letters!

Just open it up and press play for your students! No prep needed!

The video introduces students to the poems by having students echo read them. Then, the video also traces the letters (with a visual) while repeating the poem in order to provide students with a visual of how to write the letter. I always use this as the opportunity to have students “air write” the letter.

It also includes the famous, "Some letters are tall, some letters are small, some letters fall." and challenges students to figure out if the lowercase letter is small, tall, or if it falls! It then reviews the two poems for students.

Use any (or all) of these files:
• Alphabet Writing Practice for the Smartboard: After showing the video, I do some group practice on the smartboard using this file, having students take turns coming up and writing their letters while practicing the alphabet formation poem.
• Handwriting Book (with the poems!): Have students practice their letter formation with the poems right in front of them!
• Alphabet Writing/Formation Signs: I post our current poems on the board for the day, then place them in a binder afterwards for students to reference.

The links to the other videos in this series are:
• Letter Aa - FREE!
• Letter Bb - FREE!
• Letter Cc
• Letter Dd
• Letter Ee
• Letter Ff
• Letter Gg
• Letter Hh
• Letter Ii
• Letter Jj
• Letter Kk
• Letter Ll
• Letter Mm
• Letter Nn
• Letter Oo
• Letter Pp
• Letter Qq
• Letter Rr
• Letter Ss
• Letter Tt
• Letter Uu
• Letter Vv
• Letter Ww
• Letter Xx
• Letter Yy
• Letter Zz

The video also informally introduces consonants and vowels - the backgrounds of vowels are in red, while the backgrounds of consonants are in blue.
