About Our Project

The children decided that they would like to make a class alphabet book about autumn. First, we made of list of words for each letter that related to the autumn theme. Once this had been accomplished, we voted on the one word for each letter that we would put in our book. Next, we thought of a sentence that would be appropriate for each letter of the alphabet. Then the children picked which letters they wanted to illustrate. We wish that we could display all the children’s illustrations on this page, but the file would be much too large. We are going to put the book into a PowerPoint Presentation, which you will be able to view on our class website in a few weeks. We also have our original hard copy of the book, which will be sent home to be shared with our families. Please visit us soon and take a look at all our illustrations.
