Alphabet Under Construction

Bibliographic Information: Fleming, Denise. Alphabet under Construction. NY, NY: Henry Holt and, 2002. Print.

Brief Annotation: This story is about a mouse who works on each letter of the alphabet; he completes a variety of tasks to get them “ready.”

Genre: Fiction

Grade Level: K-2

Readers who will like this: This story will be enjoyed by students who are learning the letters of the alphabet – it presents them in a new and exciting way.

Rating/ Response: 3 – This book was eye catching but it didn’t have much content other than the letters and phrases for each one.

One question you would ask before a read aloud: Who can name all 26 letters of the alphabet?

Reading Strategy: First Days

Rationale for Strategy: This book provides a wonderful opportunity to introduce the letters and have students practice the sounds each makes. Students can practice knowledge they already know or prepare themselves for an upcoming lesson.
