Check out our new ABC video!!
Hello young readers, parents and teachers,
Akira’s Book Club works closely with our partner, Wordsmith Jr, to help children learn and read. We are educators, parents, students and friends who encourage the love of learning and reading in children. We are very excited to share our first video with you. It features beautiful illustrations for each letter of the alphabet from our book, Akira's Animal Alphabet Alliterations. Each page includes an alliteration of animals engaged in varying behaviors. Alliteration is where the same letter or sound is at the beginning or closely connected words.
This video is for parents, family members and friends to watch with children and to challenge them to say the words they will hear and see come to life in the video. Hearing words is a building block to saying them, reading and understanding…keeping in mind that ‘practice makes perfect.’ In the first half of the video you will see and hear the words spoken by an adult and a child. In the second half you will be prompted to say the words after you hear the adult read them. Some phrases are very easy such as ‘balancing baby bears’ and others are tongue twisters such as ‘waving walrus waddling’.
Akira's Animal Alphabet Alliterations and eleven other books are available here on our website. Each of our books targets a specific literacy building block. You can join Akira’s Book Club and get our newsletter by sharing your email on our website.
