Laying the foundations

Sarah EnsorNews

We love our Alphabet Explorers – they are the perfect tool to develop reading-readiness prior to embarking on the journey to literacy!

This week we’re launching the Alphabet Explorers Letter Posters to sit alongside the award-winning Boxed Set of 30 titles and the Photocopy Worksheets.

Just like the Alphabet Explorers books, the new Letter Posters present the correct upper and lower case letter forms together in a highly appealing way, supported by real-life photographic imagesAE-USB. Print and display all the letter posters for use as an alphabet frieze on a classroom or bedroom wall. Use for a wide variety of letter activities at school or home, or assemble into an alphabet book.

We have two great ways to get your hands on the Letter Posters PDF – either online download or delivery on our adorable Red Rocket Readers USB drive.

Online – Available as a PDF in a choice of A4 or US Letter format. Purchase in the bookshop then download from the Teacher Tools/Worksheets page.

USB – A combined purchase of the Worksheets and Letter Posters PDF files, supplied on a Red Rocket Readers 2gb USB Drive. View in bookshop.

Red Rocket Alphabet Explorers will help children to become familiar with all the letters of the alphabet in the following ways:AE box and spread

  • word and picture associations
  • sound associations
  • sharing rhymes (inside back cover)
