Here are some ideas beyond singing the ABC song to learn letters of the alphabet.

Hello Connie,

Do you have any ideas about how to teach illiterate grannies to read and write? I now that is a huge question and of course one can be overwhelmed with the information that is available but n the first instance, I want to teach the alphabet and numbers 1-10, then teach them to write the letters forming them 'properly' and then to put the right ones together so that they can write their names. I m told that would be a great treat and allow them to open a bank account or similar. Most of the ladies I will be teaching are 70+ - this is an initiative run by an old age home near me. I have yet to go and meet them.

Any general advice and comments from you and all would be most welcome. I don't envisage having to teach the concepts behind reading and writing - just how to do it. I don't think I will tell them that this word is a conjunction or that a pronoun etc. - I will just use the words in context and teach them that way. Maybe one or two would want to read books (and I will react accordingly) but I doubt it from what I have heard. They need to be able to read prices, street signs, specials at the veggie store ... things like that.

Okay, thanks and all - P S I tried to open a new thread for Adult Literacy but it kept returning me to this thread without the option, hence the odd followup!
