Alphabet Books for Community Center
Alphabet books are a staple in most classrooms, but have you ever thought about where those books come from? There are classrooms in the United States that don’t have simple books on the shelves to help students learn in a different way. In this project, you’ll make these simple alphabet books that will go to local classrooms and community centers to help students learn their ABC’s.
1. Construction paper
2. Card stock, scrapbook paper, or other fun paper
3. Glue, scissors, tape
4. Markers, crayons, colored pencils, etc.
5. Other fun crafting supplies
1. Set up supplies on the table, making sure there is plenty of room for you and the girls to work. Also, you might want to put something underneath your work to protect the surface you are working on.
2. Take a few minutes before you begin to make sure everyone participating in the project understands the purpose of the alphabet books and sees the importance of making them.
3. Assign each girl, or group of girls a letter or group of letters and give them the freedom to decorate it however they choose. Each letter should be done on a 5x7 piece of sturdy paper and it helps if the letters are generally the same size.
