I was looking for some new alphabet books and I have found some really cute new ones out there! Or at least they are new to me!
Eric Carle’s ABC: Of course, who can resist the artwork in Eric Carle’s books? I like this one because the capital letter is at the top of the pages and the lower case letter begins each corresponding word. It has a really nice lay out to it.
Creature abc: Beautiful, beautiful book! Great photographs of animals in this book.
ABC: A Child’s First Alphabet Book: Wonderful illustrations in this abc book and each picture has several pictures of objects for that letter.
Not Another Boring ABC Book: Bright, colorful and fun illustrations in this abc book. I like that the letters, both capital and lower case are at the top of the page, words that begin with these letters are included and then those words are used in a sentence. This is a fun book!
1 2 3 Versus A B C: A new take on an ABC book! Numbers vs. Letters on who is more important. I like how it shows both numbers and letters and how they are different. We all know some students who get these mixed up!
ABCs of Halloween: And one abc book for the Halloween season coming up! Nice illustrations featuring the capital letters. This book does show and mention witches, so it may not be for you if you are not allowed to read books like that in your school.
One way I like to use ABC books is with an ABC arc. An arc is a great way for students to work with the abcs. Curve the capitals or lower case magnetic letters into an arc. As student read the book they pull down the letters that match the ones in the book. It is a great activity to help student learn their letters and to learn where the letters are at in abc order.
