Today’s post is a list of websites which are great for whole class, small groups or individual activities to help your students learn their ABC. There are many different facets of this process including, recognition and identification of the letters, identification of both lower and upper case letters,the sounds that the letters generally make and matching the letters to accompanying words which start with that letter. In this post I have tried to identify each of these processes with accompanying websites and games. This post took quite a while to research as a lot of the games available but the quality varies. I will also write posts over the next week on great apps, songs and printables.
