Helping improve vital language
skills through fun game play and
fundamental reading activities
ABC’s are the foundation of the english language.
Reading develops listening skills, language skills and promotes critical thinking. Speaking, listening, reading and writing develop together.
The part of the brain that processes movement is the same part of the brain that processes learning; therefore, there is value in games that stimulate inner-ear motion like rolling, running, or tossing.
Learning to read starts with the ability to recognize each letter of the alphabet and the sound it represents. Children need to recognize letters before they are able to write. The best ways to teach the alphabet and language skills is through repetition and practice. Repetition strengthens kids’ memory. Through repeated exposure to letters and words, a child’s instant recognition and vocabulary grows.
Activity, movement and games help and encourage kids by building and supporting reading skills while in a fun and encouraging environment.
The concept of abc123 is to bring athletics and academics together through cooperative game play. Kids participate in a variety of fun and movement-based introduction and warm up drills, fun and movement-based progressions for player improvement (developmental drills) and fun and movement-based games that incorporate both physical and educational skills.
The abc123 Program is for after school programs, sports instructional classes, instructors, special needs teachers, physical educators, camp counselors, coaches and parents. Both small and large groups work well with abc123. abc123 programs can be used on the court, playground, playing field or gym.
