My scholars love starting off the year making their own Alphabet Books. In past years when my scholars learned a new letter, they'd trace the letter and then draw and label three pictures that begin with that letter. It's worked out great in the past, but now I want my scholars to get a little bit more out of creating their Alphabet Books. So, I created these cute little books to help with...
* Letter recognition & letter sounds
* Distinguishing between capital and lowercase letters
* Concepts of print (words, spaces, directionality, punctuation)
* Sight words (I, see, a, an, is, like, my, here, have, has, the, we, with)
* Building simple vocabulary with pictures for ELs
* Coloring skills
* Cutting & gluing skills ("Just a dot, not a lot!")
Each letter page makes one letter book! Includes 26 books. What's great about these books is that you don't have to do anything but make the copies! No cutting. No gluing. No pre-stapling! Scholars can create their books and keep them in them book boxes to read over and over again.
How to make a book:
1. Print out a copy of the letter page.
2. Write name on title page.
3. Color the pictures at the bottom.
4. Match the words/pictures at the bottom of the page with the empty word boxes.
5. Cut & glue the pictures in the empty word boxes.
6. Cut along the straight horizontal dotted lines to create the separate pages of the book.
7. Put book together and staple on left side.
