Reviews - What do customers think about Jumbo Fun With the Alphabet?
A good resource Feb 21, 2007
This book has a good variety of alphabet activities. A two page spread at the beginning of the book describes a variety of activities to introduce any letter or sound. In addition, each letter has:
* a full page picture of an animal and model of the capital and small version of the letter suitable for hanging on the wall * letter and picture cards for the letter (located in the back of the book) * a suggestion for a sorting activity * a bibliography of alphabet books and other books that feature the letter (i.e. for P- pigs and popcorn, for J- jets and jellyfish) * a recipe or snack * a simple drawing exercise and oral language experience * two or three worksheets- usually one for tracing the letter, one in which you cut and paste pictures, and one additional activity * a "Make It!" project in which templates are copied on construction paper and put together into something (a jet for J, a bear for B, etc.) * a little book you copy and fold into fourths to read
The activities for each letter are themed around two different objects or animals (quail and quilts for Q, otter and octopus for O) and the pages for a little ABC book (A is for ant, etc.) is in the back of the book. The strength of this curriculum is the variety of activities included and this book would be the one to buy if you wish to work from a single resource.
