In this activity your child creates a personalized alphabet book with magazine pictures to help him learn letters.
Line up the construction paper and punch three holes on the left side. Thread a piece of yarn through each hole and tie a knot to secure the paper. On the front page write the title, My Alphabet Book and your child's name as the author. At the top of each page print a capital and lower case letter. Make sure to leave room for pictures below. Show the book to your child and explain that you are going to make a book with all the letters of the alphabet. You may want to read aloud alphabet books you have.
This part of the activity can be completed over a few days. Staring with the letter a, find a magazine picture of an item that begins with the letter. Ask your child to say the first letter of the item in the picture and the initial letter sound. Cut out the picture and help your child glue it onto the page underneath the letter. Continue with the rest of the letters. Finding a picture for the letter X may be hard, so your child can just draw a large X on the page. You can use the completed book to help your child practice the alphabet.
