Yearly Calendar--->>>Order of Themes

The order I introduce each letter and number is listed below. Everyday we talk about numbers by counting the days the students have been in school, we count the numbers on the calendar, the number of snacks... but once a week I focus on a specific math activity (and number theme) found in my Number Neighborhood Activity book. The letter activity and suggested theme is found in The Amazing Action Alphabet Activity book. The letters are NOT listed in alphabetical order because I follow the suggested letter order found in my Amazing Action Alphabet Beginning Reader. This book introduces the most frequently used letters in an order which allows the student to begin reading immediately.
