Smart-e Alphabet is a highly interactive project which improves students’ skills in written and spoken English, which leads to beginning reading by taking advantage of the youngsters’ seemingly fearless approach to technology. Each page includes an upper and lower case letter, student-selected pictures with recordings of student voices, and letter outlines for practicing penmanship. Individual students’ pages are compiled into the interactive Smart-e Alphabet book. In class, students go to the SMART Board and choose the “Letter of the Day” page. Students touch the letter to hear its name and sound(s), drag the correct sounds and pictures into the matrix, and practice their penmanship by using their fingertips to outline their letter.
