Nature Alphabet Book

This week, preschool and kindergarten children ran around my backyard searching for nature’s treasures to add to their alphabet books.  What a blast!

You can try it, too.  I order my books from Bare Books but you can always make your own book in a 3 ring binder or using the fold and staple technique.

Write the alphabet in order, one letter per page.  I also wrote words like:  ant, bird, grass and tree.  Then, we did those pages together – drawing pictures and collecting grass for those letter pages.

Now, your small writer has written his or her first book — one that can be added to for many day to come.

*Older kids love this, too!

    I love your ideas Melissa. I came across Imagination soup through the Linked In group and it is very timely as I have an interview for a freelance training post in Family Learning tomorrow and am trying to decide on an activity to demo!
