Side A

Alpha Oops!
Before the Story

Identify the title, author and illustrator. Look at the pictures on the cover. What do you think this book is about?  The title has the word, oops in it. When do you use the word oops?  Let’s find out what the oops is in this story. Watch the letters put on a show. Pay close attention to what they say and the expressions on their faces. 

During the Story

“Z” is using a loud voice and has an angry face? Why? Talk about how some of the other letters feel about shuffling the alphabet all around.  Does everyone agree? What do you think? Should the letters go in order for this show?

After the Story

If you liked the Alphabet show, clap your hands. What did letter Z do to make letter A feel better at the end?

Follow Up Ideas

Have children work in pairs and put the letters A – E in any order they want. Take turns reading your mixed up alphabet to the class. Prepare big cut out letters, let children add happy, sad, or angry faces to the letters and tell a letter story.
