These Very First Alphabet Sentences were created to assist a student struggling with letter recognition.

This is the original product description. It explains how the product was “born”.


Hi, It’s the middle of April and I still have a Kindergarten student who needs lots of work with letter identification. He’s very sensitive to the idea that his classmates are reading, but he needs to work on letters.

This is how I came up with the Alphabet Sentences. While we are still working on letter identification, he is excited to read a page of “real sentences”. (Each sentence has the same pattern: _____ is for _____.)

Start by looking for all the “target” letters and then trace them using a thin marker. (On the c page, he will find, trace and say each letter c.)

I am able to point out the upper case letter at the beginning of each sentence and the punctuation at the end of each sentence. He can work with me to improve his comprehension of voice to print match, return sweep and other aspects.

Once he’s mastered a letter, I often like to “mix it all” so he can read sentences with all the letters that he knows. To do this, I print out the pages on tagboard. Then I cut them across to make individual sentence strips. I can then give him a pile with all the letters he’s been working on. He loves to read through the pile and experiences great success.

As I present the alphabet sentences, we work together on vocabulary and first sounds. Sometimes he can generate two words, then choose the right word based upon the initial sound. This was what happened when he saw the jacket picture. After he first said jacket, I asked him if he could think up another word that would be appropriate for the picture. He was then able to say jacket.

He will clap with me when he finds a new word. We compare how many claps and how long each word takes.

This Alphabet Sentence series is very helpful, and it has helped this student achieve a lot of success. These sheets will be used by me as I introduce letters in the fall.


Twenty samples pages, showing each format, can be seen in the preview.

We appreciate you stopping by to take a look.
