Supporting All Learners
This lesson is geared toward students who need help learning the letter names and sounds.
Students can create their own Hip-Hop alphabet songs by using GarageBand to record their voices and to add music tracks.
Students can use modeling clay to make alphabet letters.
Assign teams of students' alphabet letters. Then students can use a digital camera to take photos of objects which begin with their letter sound. Import these photos into your computer. Use iPhoto to make an alphabet book. An example can be found at http://edcommunity.apple.com/ali/story.php?itemID=120
