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 Magazines/ flyers We always find these items useful too: Directions Print out the cover page. Add your name to it. Letter Print out the number of pages that you would like for your book with each page representing a letter. Letter You can: 1) Add illustrations that correspond to the letter. *Isn’t that a beautiful pencil case that our son’s teacher made for every kid in the class!?* 2) Cut out items from flyers/ magazines that correspond to the letter. 3) Cut out and glue together items that correspond to the letter. 4) Take photos of items, print them out and then add them to your book. 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. Pin this idea Purpose Recognizing words that start with a specific sound, corresponding to a chosen letter. Safety Notes We suggest that you use a tray and a smock to protect your clothing and surfaces if you are using glue. Use scissors with care and direct, adult supervision.
