    Abstract:
    "སོ་རི་མེ་བུ།", "so ri me bu" (teeth, mountain, fire, boy), is an alphabet book for Tibetan. It was in use at Esukhia's immersion and online school from 2015 to 2018, when it was replaced by an improved and expanded version called "A0 Jongdeb" (https://www.esukhia.xyz/a0-cover). At the time, it represented a major pedagogical breakthrough in that: 1) it taught the alphabet in a frequency-based curriculum, introducing the most common letters first; and 2) in a Tibetan-only, immersion style manner. It takes its name from the first four "letters" introduced, each representing an actual vocab item: "so", "teeth"; "ri", "mountain"; "me", "fire"; and "bu", "boy". These four letters are frequent and useful; and these four vocab items are concrete examples of these simple spellings, and the four vowels of Tibetan.
