I've kept track of all the stories I used this year:
2024 Story of Written Language - Books & Activities
There are so many wonderful things you can bring in as extensions here. Here are some of the books I have on the shelf that would work beautifully:
Cherokee - Sequoyah: The Cherokee Man Who Gave His People Writing by James Rumford, The Apple Tree by Sandy Tharp-Thee
Braille - Six Dots: A Story of Young Louis Braille by Jen Bryant, DK Braille: Animals, DK Braille: On the Move, DK Braille: It Can't Be True! Incredible Tactile Comparisons, Guess How Much I Love You by Sam McBratney
This was the first year I realized I had several books in Arabic. At the back of The Monster in the Alphabet, Rumford shows the Phoenician alphabet with its "most famous offspring," which are English, Greek, Hebrew, and Arabic.
I never knew that the Arabic alphabet was a relative of the Phoenician one!
