Are you looking for a fun and important way to get students interested in reading, writing, and research? The alphabet book requires students to summarize content through the creation of an ABC list. Topics can be chosen from any area of study.
Materials are split into two scaffolded student packets. Scaffolding information is the sequencing of content, materials, and tasks. ALL terms are defined within the guide! Simply move through the materials, with students, bit-by-bit as time allows.
The first packet contains all materials necessary for drafting an alphabet book. Items include:
Cover for student materials
Bibliography guide with examples
Alphabet note-taking pages (A-Z)
A text features chart for use in writing
The second packet includes all materials necessary to publish an ABC
book. It includes:
Alphabet pages A-Z
Final draft bibliography
The alphabet book encourages students to write statements about the big idea – using evidence. The Alphabet Book can be used for math, science, social studies, ELA and any other area of study.
This project easily allows for differentiation.
