Engage your students with a PROVEN system to teach letters & sounds. It’s fun, effective and interactive.
TKS Bootcamp’s ABC Bootcamp is a research based, classroom proven 26 day rigorous introduction to all 26 letters and sounds. It is part of the TKS Bootcamp Curriculum. ABC Bootcamp allows you to introduce the letters and sounds so that your students can begin manipulating letters and sounds to make words.
ABC Bootcamp is a completely flexible resource that is easily adaptable to meet your classroom and students needs. For each letter you will do handwriting, a whole group circle chart, and a silly hat.
You will also conduct small group instruction using the included Student Alphabet Books. These books allow your students hands-on differentiated practice with identifying & writing beginning sounds and letters.
At the end of bootcamp, you will celebrate with a fashion show. Students will make a vest for an assigned letter. This is a great family involvement project for the beginning of the school year.
