Happy Read Across America Week!
Today I want to share with you a quick and fun activity to go along with Dr. Seuss’s ABC’s! This activity doesn’t have to be paired with this book, and can totally be completed alone, but since it’s RAAW, I realized it’s a perfect fit!
This project is super simple. Read Dr. Seuss’s ABC’s to your class, and then give each student a letter! They will get to write their own words that begin with the letter, illustrate it, and share it with the class. These make a great display, and the best part is that you can easily differentiate it!
If you have younger students (kindergarten), or students who just need a little extra support, you can have them draw items that begin with their letter and then write the words themselves phonetically. Then, you can sit with them and rewrite any words that are misspelled. Highlighting every other line helps them to leave spaces for you to help correct their words.
For other students, you can have them make a list of as many words as they can think of, (they can even use the dictionary as long as they can read the words they choose), and then they can pick some or all to illustrate.
And lastly, for older or more advanced students, you can have them write sentences or phrases with words that start mostly with their letter and then pick one to illustrate. For added fun, have them highlight the letter at the beginning of each word to see how many they can include!
I hope you enjoy this fun activity with your students! To grab this pack, click on any of the above pictures to purchase it from my TpT shop!
