Conventional textbooks presented the letters of the alphabet in the beginning itself, in the ‘A for Apple’ mode. This is no longer the case. Research on syllable recognition and letter–sound correspondence have shown that exposure to a series of words focusing on a particular sound facilitates learning.

The letter groups for tracing are based on the hand movement required, and the letter recognition indicates the alphabetical order of the letters, which is necessary for reference skills later, to look up dictionaries, directories, and so on.
