Side A

123 Versus ABC
Before the Story

Wow – there’s a lot happening on this cover. Tell me all the things you see. There are two characters on the cover that we’re going to see on every page. The Number 1 and the Letter A don’t always get along in this story. Let’s see how they work out their differences.

During the Story

The main message of this story begins on the title page - be sure to read that aloud and then ask the children what they think this story is going to be about. When you get to the pages with the alligator being pulled in 2 directions, make sure the children follow what’s happening. Why is Number 1 pulling the alligator? Why is Letter A pulling him in the opposite direction? Focus on the characters’ expressions.

After the Story

Do a quick recap. Number 1 thought this was a book about numbers; Letter A thought it was about letters. Who was right? In the beginning of the story how did the characters treat each other? What happened at the end?
