Alphabet Projects

My child knows her alphabet and its many sounds, but she needs practice writing her letters - especially lower case.  The problem is that it's not her favorite thing to practice, and I want to keep it fun and stress-free.  Enter:  these cute letter projects I found at Totally Tots.  I use them to sweeten the deal.  Five year old practices writing upper and lower case letters, then she gets to make a coordinating art project.


Totally Tots did a series of "Now I Know My ABC's" posts a while back and they're a great resource for alphabet activities!  We've just been using their ideas for letter projects, but they also include books that go along with each letter.  Fun, huh?






This is what we have so far and I'm sure we'll be able to post the rest in the next couple of months!


*Update 1/18/12:  we made it through maybe half of the alphabet projects and then our enthusiasm died out.  Totally Tots has everything from A to Z if you want to see the rest!*

  8. These are as cute as can be! What a great way for a child to learn the alphabet. You should get one of those big poster frames and frame it.
