Enseignons l’alphabet ensemble is an affordable 9-week course, created for French primary teachers, focused on teaching the alphabet one letter per day at the beginning of the year in maternelle. (Read more about my practice for teaching the alphabet here!)
This alphabet bootcamp structure will help your students master the alphabet in just a few weeks instead of over several months!
I’ll provide the resources, the answers to your questions, video trainings, and checklists and challenge sheets to keep you on track and help you become the best teacher you can be – without the overwhelm and burnout that normally goes along with it.
NOTE: You are purchasing this TeachAlong™ to go through self-paced, on your own. Buying the TeachAlong™ here will not guarantee that you’re purchasing the TeachAlong™ during a live run.
If you need resources, I’ve got ’em!
When you join Enseignons l’alphabet ensemble, you’ll receive all the resources listed below. You’ll get over 125$ worth of resources in this bundle – and this is not a bundle you can get anywhere else!

I’ve structured this TeachAlong™ in three parts, or blocks. Here’s the breakdown:
In Part 1, we will lay the foundation for the rest of the TeachAlong™. You’ll learn all about why I teach the alphabet the way that I do and how. You’ll choose which parts of my routine you want to use yourself, and you’ll build your own alphabet routine.
Part 2 is where we will actually be “teaching along”! Each week, I’ll keep you on track with what to teach and what to prep via quick weekly overview videos, along with lists of what to prep (with page numbers!) and checklists to keep you on track.
In Part 3, Next Steps, I’ll get you all set up for continuing spiral alphabet review for all your students. I’ll share my favourite whole-group, small-group, and independent centre ideas, and I’ll explain a resource that I’ll be using to assess their alphabet knowledge!
Q: What does it mean that the TeachAlong is “self-paced”?
A: When I say “self-paced,” I mean that you will go through this course independently. I do run this course live every year, at the beginning of the year, but in order to access the live run, you need to be a member of my Enseignons ensemble membership at that time. If you’re purchasing the course here, then you can work through the videos, workbooks, and weekly overviews at your own pace!
Q: What if I already own a lot of your resources? Will it still be worth it?
A: In a word, YES! My goal is to make sure that it will be worth it for anyone who wants to join. I aim to price my TeachAlongs™ so that they’re less than the value of the included resources, in case teachers already own some of the resources! The TeachAlong™ also contains TONS of videos that explain exactly how I use the resources and exactly how I would teach in my own classroom, and they are full of tips for your classroom and students.
Q: What about math/writing/other subjects?
A: This TeachAlong™ is very focused on l’alphabet! I chose to focus this course very specifically on teaching the alphabet in French, since this is such an essential part of the curriculum at the beginning of the school year. Throughout this TeachAlong™, we will not be discussing any other subjects.
Q: What is your refund policy?
A: Due to the digital nature of the course and the materials inside it, I do not grant refunds.
“Mme Andrea’s La rentrée…une réussite! [original version of Enseignons l’alphabet ensemble] made my September/October run the smoothest it ever has! Her content was relevant for my grade ones, and the setup was easy to follow along with. I loved her videos, and the explanations were clear, concise, and practical!” – Ashley B.
“I’ve followed [Andrea] on Instagram and Facebook for years, and so I was interested in exploring how she teaches the alphabet. Let me tell you, this course did not disappoint!!! The instructional videos and module workbooks were helpful and made it easy to find the resources.” – Melinda P.
“As a first-time first grade FI teacher, this course was indispensable. When I accepted the job, I didn’t know how to begin teaching the kids literacy, especially after missing so much time due to COVID. With this course, I knew WHAT to do and HOW to do it. I was able to give my first graders a strong foundation in ABCs at the beginning of the year. I am not sure what I would have done without it! Also, Mme. Andrea is awesome. She is very encouraging and supportive; you will love working with her. Highly recommend!” – Beth C.
“I really enjoyed the format of the TeachAlong™. Having the information ‘dropped’ to us in little chunks week by week made it much less overwhelming. I didn’t feel like I had to print and prep a ton of materials all at once. Rather, I always felt very accomplished and ready for the week, because I was able to digest the information, lessons, materials, and videos in smaller parts and then get ‘that’ part ready, not having to worry about ‘all the rest.’ Merci for a great course!” – Joanna A.
