Step 5: Help your child cut the pictures out and let your child glue them to the appropriate letter page.

Step 6: Read the book together to review the letters.


NOTE: You could also use a duotang or coil scribbler instead of coloured paper as the book and simply write and glue in that!

ALPHABET BOOKLET:

NOTE: This can be a nice personal book if you use photos or photocopies of photos of friends and family members.

 Materials: Crayons and markers, coloured paper, child-safe scissors, glue stick, old magazines to cut out, old photographs for friends and family, damp cloth for sticky fingers, stapler. 
 
Step 1: Fold the paper in half and form a book by stapling them together.

Step 2: Write the letters on each page of the booklet (one letter per page) or have your child write the letters if he/she is able or cut out letters from a magazine (or from my Alphabet Cut-Out Worksheet) or use stamps or stickers.

Step 3: If you are using old photographs (or photocopies of pictures) cut them to fit and let your child glue them to the appropriate letter page.

Step 4: Search through magazines together to find things that start with each letter.

ALPHABET STICKER COLLAGE:

 Materials: Stickers of letters, coloured paper.

 Step 1: Let your child choose what colour paper he/she wants for the background.
