Alphabet Collages

I absolutely love sharing alphabet ideas that I've used in my classroom, and this is one of my favourites. We did this activity right at the start of the year as we worked our way through our Jolly Phonics sounds, and I only just recently took the display down giving me a chance to photograph these brilliant alphabet collages. If you look closely, you'll notice that each letter is filled with something beginning with that letter.

Here's what we used...

a - apples
b - blue buttons
c - colourful crayons
d - dots
e - eggs
f - feathers
g - gold glitter
h - hearts
i - insect stickers
j - jelly beans
k - kites
l - leaves
m - magazine m's
n - numbers
o - orange ovals
p - pink & purple pom poms
q - question marks
r - ribbon
s - smiley stickers
t - triangles
u - umbrellas
v - vegetables
w - washers
x - (we just coloured it in - x is always a tricky one for these kinds of things)
z - zebra stripes

These fantastic templates came from The Measured Mom. Click here to find the lower case letters like I used, and here to find the upper case letters along with a comprehensive list of ideas to fill each letter. 

School's here in Australia are half way through their year, and have most likely mastered the alphabet by now (so please pin this post for next year fellow Aussie early years teachers!!). But on the other side of the world - school is just going back, and I'm sure there would be some eager 5 year olds who would love this activity.

Here are some of my other alphabet posts that you may find useful

Students may not understand at first what this help is and what it means, but we hope that our list will give you reason to believe that it is for your own good to go to counseling.

  5. Very good idea for learning the alphabet. This form of play helps children perceive information and knowledge more easily. I wish at least some of our homework was easy to complete. But at the university the curriculum is very rich. That’s why I came here and found out about a service that many of my friends use. I began to turn to writers for help and this made the learning process easier for me.
