This 56 page letter packet is designed so that you can copy the book, cut in half, staple, and then it is ready for use.
The PREVIEW shows every page included in this resource.
This pack has 2 sets of pages A-Z. The first set has a page for each letter of the alphabet such as "A is for alligator" with a picture of an alligator. All other pages follow this same format with each new letter and a matching picture. (Note: All pictures are animals except for the letter "U" being an umbrella.)
The following lists the picture included for each letter: A is for alligator. B is for bear. C is for cat. D is for duck. E is for elephant. F is for fish. **(2 options for G) G is for goat. G is for giraffe. H is for hippo. I is for iguana. J is for jellyfish. K is for koala. L is for lion. M is for moose. N is for narwhal. O is for octopus. P is for pig. Q is for quail. R is for rhino. S is for snake. T is for turtle. U is for umbrella. V is for vulture. W is for walrus. **(2 options for X) X is for x-ray fish. X is for fox. (for the ending sound /ks/ - x is underlined at the end of fox) Y is for yak. Z is for zebra.
The second copy of the book does not have a picture shown. An empty box is in place of the picture. Most classrooms have their own set of alphabet pictures. The empty box gives students the opportunity to draw their own picture to represent each letter of the alphabet. **Teachers can also use this set to add different pictures for each letter of the alphabet or even adding student pictures and laminating for beginning letters of student names.
There is a dotted writing line at the bottom of each page. This section provides flexibility giving each teacher several options to provide for differentiation. 1. Students can write each letter of the alphabet on each page. These pages can be laminated and put in a literacy center with a dry erase marker for students to use over and over. 2. Students can copy the sentence. 3. Students can write the word naming the picture for each letter. 4. Students can come up with their own sentence to write about the picture for each letter. 5. Students can write names of classmates if the teacher uses the blank set and adds student pictures and laminates them.
I hope your students have fun with this cute letter book for A-Z!
I am a kindergarten teacher with 22 years of teaching experience! I received my Doctor of Education degree in Teacher Leadership from Walden University in June 2010. The title of my doctoral study is "Writing Conferences in Kindergarten: Using Feedback to Enhance Student Writing." My passion is teaching writing to my students and providing feedback for their writing experiences. I love teaching kindergarten. It is amazing to see students enter the classroom not even knowing how to hold a pencil and watching them become readers and writers by the end of the year. I love teaching in small groups and rotating student groups with literacy centers and math centers.
