Learning Letters: Kindergarten Connections Using the Visual Arts in Literacy Lessons

    I’m all for using multiple techniques in one project. This letter ‘T’ activity isn’t just drawing/writing, it lets the students get in even more fine motor practice by including collage.

    It’s a magnificent mega-list of alphabet themed art. When you go from A – Z, pick and choose activities to match each letter.

    Excellent book suggestion (for you), along with equally as excellent art ideas. Sometimes a step-by-step tutorial is hard to follow. This article features my favorite – pictures of the projects. Instead of having to put the ideas together in your head (and hope that you get them right), this post shows student-made examples.

    It’s a completely creative collection of alphabet themed activities for the young student. I love the diversity of art activities involved. Not only are these superb resources for your classroom, but these also make terrific take-homes (for parents who aren’t exactly sure how to get educationally artsy with their children).

    For me, the best part of this art activity is actually the intro! All too often our students lose interest when learning the alphabet. Writing letters over and over again is repetitive, and this activity counteracts the same old pencil and paper lesson.

    It’s adorable! My favorite part of this letter-learning art lesson is that you don’t have to be the ‘visual arts’ teacher (or even crafty in any way) to try this one with your students. While this one focuses on ‘K’, all you have to do is pick a different letter-word combo to create an alphabet-full of projects!
