Tiffany Angel’s letters is a lovely book on subjects that are often neglected in classrooms. If you’re looking for a new way to teach reading and spelling, this may be an ideal choice for you. It is well organized, easy to read, and full of interesting information. There is no need to sit through boring classes anymore!
In her introduction, Tiffany teaches the students how to relate the thought processes of a person to a written word problem. Her definition of “reading”writing” is very clear and she does not use any old metaphor or adjective to describe them. She will allow for a lot of discussion about the nature of reading and writing and explain why she believes these methods to be more important than memorization.
It is very important to remember that the “ideal” for understanding is to have an analytical approach. The more questions you ask, the better understanding you will have of any topic. Tiffany insists that it is important to have an approach that is not “limited by knowledge.”
In order to understand letters better, Tiffany emphasizes the importance of being able to count and understand the size of letter patterns. She uses a number system as a tool in teaching the students how to relate the patterns of letters to various word problems.
The emphasis on numbers is something I didn’t think I would ever find in a book on learning letters, but it makes for interesting reading. Each chapter is devoted to a different group of letters and the material used is based on the student’s responses to questions.
Tiffany Angel also provides a lot of explanations for the various letter combinations. This helps to give some solid logic behind letter combinations and more accurately relates to how letters are used. One of the best parts of the book for me was when she explained the importance of doing a lot of research before making a decision about which sets of letters were correct for a particular word. It has become difficult to create vocabulary lists as a result of too many choices.
For instance, she explains that the letter T should not be written with the letter C, and she also tells the students to avoid using the letter Z as the third letter in the word “bug”. I had been trying to learn a bunch of words that include the letter Z, and it was frustrating to me to see that these letters were not permitted in most words. Having the proper combination of letters is essential to having the correct word.
Tiffany also goes into great detail on the use of pictures. By showing the students what happens when they write a particular set of letters, she gives a much more realistic illustration of what they are actually trying to say. The discussion is just as valuable as the lesson.
This is a good review book for the students who want to learn the most about letters. There is some great material and the explanations are straightforward. There is even a section that provides tips for remembering and using the vowels!
I think it is nice to have a subject with a good visual learning system in it. I like the way Tiffanyangel can show students the different elements of letters and what each one means. This will help students remember and apply the letter combinations that are taught.
There is no question that a good education should be engaging and entertaining, but this book provides another effective method of helping students learn letters. Tiffany has made it very simple for students to learn different parts of the alphabet and she is very persuasive. I think there are some good ideas here that can benefit anyone who wants to learn more about this interesting subject.
TiffanyAngel’s Teacher Education Program is highly recommended for anyone who is interested in helping students learn more about this important subject. The book will teach the students the basics of memorizing letters and counting letters as well as teaching the students how to use the basic concepts. This makes learning easier and faster for the students, and I am sure that Tiffany Angel would appreciate it if more people were to read her book.
