Students practice the English alphabet in the activity.

The English alphabet consists of 26 letters, all of which have an uppercase (大文字, oumoji) and lowercase (小文字 komoji) form.

Teaching the alphabet is crucial to begin teaching students how to read in English.

Students often mix up lowercase "b" and "d," so keep that in mind. The pronunciation of the letter "v" is difficult for Japanese students to distinguish from "b."
