Alphabet Art Book - For the past few years, I have made an Alphabet Art book with my classroom. I used to do a page a week (according to the Letter of the Week), but I recently switched to doing the entire book during the first month of school. It was much better not having to store the books all year. Another plus of doing it this way was that the kids took home their own alphabet book to read all of the time.

I have listed below some different suggestions for each letter of the alphabet. You can pick which one for each letter is more your style. Some people are in to painting and mess more than others so you can choose what you like.
