PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Incorporating alpha boxes is super simple, yet extremely powerful!
You can use alpha boxes for just about anything! They can be used to preview a book, reflect on a topic, or review before a test. In primary grades, students can fill them with key vocabulary from the text. In the upper grades, students can use them to summarize information, by choosing the most important word from a text that they’ve read that starts with each letter of the alphabet.

I usually use them to introduce a new unit. Students independently attempt to fill the alphabet boxes with one or more words pertaining to what they already know about the topic. After 5 – 10 minutes of work time, the students pair with their desk neighbor. They share ideas, and add to their boxes. After another 5- 10 minutes the pairs are asked to form groups of four by 2 pairs “squaring” up and the last conversation ensues. Then, we quickly run through the alphabet as a group. They love to shout out their ideas! It is also a good time to throw in any words that go with the unit that no one thought of. This activity also works well review. It’s a great way to see which of the vocabulary words the kids are remembering.
