Art Across the Alphabet contains art-centered activities for children aged three to six to reinforce letter recognition, build phonemic awareness and pre-reading skills, and associate reading with FUN! The book links art and literacy seamlessly, explores the magic of language, and offers unique opportunities to create readers while creating art-from Airplane Wings to Zany Zoo Animals!
Children explore each letter creatively through:
A Letter of the Week focus that lets each letter take center stage
An Alphabet Gallery Activity that helps children discover each letter of the alphabet with a group activity, which is then displayed in an Alphabet Gallery around the room
Fun Letter Activities for every letter of the alphabet, which can be incorporated throughout your pre-reading curriculum
The Bridge Home, which are letters that contain ideas to send to parents so they can be involved in the learning process and reinforce the lessons at home
