I'm thrilled that I decided to go ahead and get these regardless of some other reviews. The AlphaTales series, is just that, it's a series that is all designed to work together and build upon the original stories. These mini-books go along with the stories and give the kids a book of their own that they can color in or write in. The activity suggestions are included at the end of the story books. I haven't received my big book,The Big Book of AlphaTales: 26 Irresistible Stories That Build Phonemic Awareness & Teach Each Letter of the Alphabet so I cannot comment on that yet, but it states that fact in this teaching guide. I do recommend that you tone down your printer to save on ink and this will also make it easier for the kids to color. The stories are fantastic and you could use thes alone without purchasing the big book or individual story books. I chose to do the big book because it has all the stories in one location (so I wouldn't have to worry about losing them), and so the kids could go back and read the stories again after their mini-books are gunked up. I use one mini-book a week and we do several activities with them. First is the initial reading, then we all read together and follow along in our own books. We color pictures, underline each word in the sentence, count words, count sentences, count syllables, make word cards to create our vocabulary lists, and discuss how we could add to or change the story. I also take each page of the mini-books and resize the pictures and sentences to use in our wall charts. The kids have to then match the sentence with the picture. Just a few ideas of activities you can do to build on these mini-books and I'm sure there are more out there.Read more ›
