We are creating French Alphabet books. These of course could be made in any language. Both A & J now know their letters in French so I thought this would be a great and fun opportunity for them to expand their French vocabulary.
This is actually quite fun and pretty easy. I simply folded a piece of construction paper to use as our book covers, and use plain white computer paper for the pages.
I first tried to have them write the letters but they weren’t quite ready so I thought I would write them for them.
The next thing we do is look through our stickers and craft foam shapes to find “words”.
The kids “hunt” for the alphabet page they need. This has been interesting as they are already asking if they should turn their pages to the front of the book or to the back. This is great practice to become more familiar with the order of the letters.
A & J then stick the sticker in their book. This serves as great practice to use their fine motor skills.
With each sticker they practice the word and I put an emphasis on beginning sounds.
The next process is to write the words under each sticker. By doing this they will have books that they can read.
Having fun making alphabet books to nurture young minds.
