It is essential to learn the Greek alphabet well. Wenham uses transliteration to help master the Greek alphabet. We have been using transliteration exercises, here is an example and another. I am making these exercises using the 1 John 1:5-2:5 passage from Chapter 4 of Mounce.
This will help to prepare us for the reading exercise on the CD Rom. You can make your own from the website below which has the Greek Bible transliterated. http://www.bibledbdata.org/onlinebibles/greek_translit/
If you don’t have a Greek Bible to check your answers , there is one online : http://www.greekbible.com/index.php
I added my own little conventions (underlining digraphs and dipthongs and including the breathers). I made a transliteration chart. Not all the children enjoyed the exercise, one of them writing in Greek letters a message to me in English (another transliteration) about how he did not like the exercise. I guess it worked! I think his frustation was that when he put the lesson into Greek letters he still could not read it. Another option would be write something in English using Greek letters.
