Generally in Australia, teachers use the Carnine Order for teaching the alphabet:
Why do we do it in this order? Because the letters are visually and auditorily similar are seperated so there is no confusion; upper case letters that do not look the same as their lower case letters are introduced after most lower case letters have been introduced; and more useful and frequently used litters are introduced before less useful letters (Carnine, et al., 2006).
So based on checklists from the textbook "Teaching Children with Reading Difficulties", I have created some printable checklists that you can do at the beginning, and throughout the year to record your students knowledge of letters and sounds. There will also be checklists for important letter combinations, such as consonant diagraphs, double consonant diagraphs, initial consonant blends and silent letters. So check out my store to download your pack of letter sound checklists today!
