OBVIOUS LETTERS THE ASSOCIATIVE ALPHABET EVERY CHILD WILL REMEMBER
by Gisela Hausman
For any child or student learning the alphabet, here's a book with a difference. obvious LETTERS was written with one thought - to create a system that teaches a child the shapes and sounds of the letters as fast as possible. Hausman's goal in writing this book was to create a resource with visual associations that would help children to remember what the shape of a certain letter looked like and to get children on the road to reading and writing. She has succeeded in creating a visually attractive, colourful and easy to read resource. I whole heartedly recommend this book.
In addition, Hausman supports busy educators and parents with a lesson plan which can be obtained by send a blank email to obvious_letters(a)getresponse.com or by visiting her website http://www.1second.com/edu_easy.html and clicking on the appropriate link. She has also created a simple "Start-to-Read" program which again can be obtained by sending a blank email to obvious_letters(at)getresponse.com . Teachers can hand out that link to parents, giving them the opportunity to getting a short lesson plan and to using it for practice exercises.
