Do your children find dictionaries a pain? In a way we can’t blame them. Even for us big folks, looking something up in a phone book or dictionary can be a chancy adventure—like walking into a trackless jungle never to return! In fact, many of us tend to avoid reference books entirely. As a result, we’re probably not as knowledgeable or as capable as we might be. We’d rather pay extra for directory assistance than look up a number in the phone book!
A key reason for our “reference phobia” can be a simple lack of mastery of the alphabet. When you have to back up to A and sing the Alphabet Song to figure out if Q comes before T, it can be a real pain to find things which are arranged alphabetically! AlphaBetter helps end the pain in just minutes a day!
AlphaBetter® encompasses 16 Levels of drill. Your child repeats a given Level each day until he can complete it correctly within the suggested 4-minute time limit (usually about ten repeats). Then he advances to the next Level. Thus, AlphaBetter carries the average student through one school year. AlphaBetter also includes the instructor’s SmartGuide™ QuicKeys®, and a beautiful Achievement Record.
For use by students from third grade through adult, AlphaBetter makes the alphabet an aid—not an obstacle—to finding information!
AlphaBetter comes as a free bonus unit in CalcuPak 2, so you can print out its pages, keys, and Achievement Records for your kids.
Additionally, AlphaBetter is available in hard-copy, pre-printed format, accompanied by our new SuperSlate, so you can use your drills again and again!
“Totally painless. And the kids enjoyed it—they thought it was fun!”—Mrs. Birgit P. KS
- Grades 3 and up -
When you have to back up to A and sing the Alphabet Song to figure out if Q comes before T, it can be a real pain to use the dictionary or reference books! AlphaBetter helps end the pain in just minutes a day!
The 4-minute AlphaBetter exercises first divide the alphabet into 8 overlapping groups of 5 letters each, and thoroughly drill these groups. No more going to the beginning of the alphabet to get a running start!
The drills next focus on rapid recall of the relative position of any letter with respect to all other letters. Then come carefully planned drills in alphabetizing multi-letter sequences and word lists.
