This engaging project is a great way to reinforce alphabet skills!

This activity is appropriate for:
pre-k - 1st grade / 4 - 6 years

You will need:


  1. Have students bring photos or old magazines from home and cut out pictures of things that start with each letter from A-Z.
  2. Encourage students to use the construction paper to create a book page for each letter. Have students clearly write the letter on the page and then use crayons, markers or colored pencils to decorate it.
  3. Students can use photo corners or tape to affix 1 or more pictures to each page. Pictures of items that start with “A” will go on the “A” page, and so on.
  4. When all the pages are ready, have students punch holes along the left side of each one.
  5. Have students create a cover and write the title “My ABC Book” on it. Remind students to include the “by ______” line. Then, have them punch holes along the left side of the cover.
  6. Instruct students to use yarn or ribbon to bind the pages and cover together.
  7. As the year continues, students can add more photos to each page!
