Our kids have had a great hands-on Kindergarten teacher who made a giant alphabet with the kids where they would bring in items from home, things that made etc. to glue into pages of a gigantic book with poster board size pages each week!  Since we have been homeschooling we made a mini version of the alphabet book that you can do at home with a few options for representing words that start with the specified letters.  We’d love to hear your ideas too! 

Materials

  • Printable Alphabet Booklet: Letter
  • Pencil/ eraser
  • Glue
  • Coloured paper/ construction paper

Once your pages are dry, staple them together.

Once you are finished with letters, you could move onto common diagraphs (blends): Sh, Ch, Bl, Sp, Cr, Th, Br etc.
