Alphabet Art — The Verdict is In!

two exam­ples of first grade “Alpha­bet Art”

It’s offi­cial.… every­one LOVES Alpha­bet Art! From first graders to sixth graders, the responses were all the same — this project is a hit!! A few of the youngest stu­dents had to be reminded to con­nect their let­ters, but other than that most stu­dents were able to work inde­pen­dently. This project is a nat­ural for dif­fer­en­ti­ated instruc­tion.… each stu­dent can take it to what­ever level they choose. Stu­dents them­selves were com­ing up with ideas for exten­sions and vari­a­tions on the basic alpha­bet theme. Try one yourself.… these really are FUN!!

sixth grade “Alpha­bet Art” and… …art-in-progress!

    Nice. Looks like stained glass, and they get prac­tice with letters.

    Thank you for this idea! I used it today with my 1st graders. Some had a hard time and oth­ers got it. I am going to let them do it one more time, I think, and see if the results are bet­ter across the board.

    I’m sit­ting at my desk. It’s lunchtime. I real­ize that half of my first graders have fin­ished a les­son and the other half needs to fin­ish. Result­ing from a search, I landed on your blog. I’m going to try the alpha­bet les­son and see how it goes. jan
