Alphabet Bulletin Board

Here’s an easy and creative approach to an alphabet bulletin board, thanks to Maimonedes Academy in Beverly Hills, California. Using large cardboard letters, children first paint each letter a separate color, then search for magazine images that begin with each letter and glue them on. This is a nice language building activity that combines creativity with decision making and fine motor development. Lots of cognitive development takes place as children search through magazines and decide which images start with various letters and which images will fit on their letter (some will be way too big!). In most classrooms, you will be able to assign one letter per child.

Have fun, and please send me YOUR ideas on building literacy skills through art. I’d love to hear from and post your ideas for others to see.

  1. this idea is excellent. I did a language project and my alphabet was the sensory alphabet. I called it ‘Tactitle ABC’. It consist of upper and lowercase letters made from sand paper with approriate pictures for the letters.I posted all this on firm card and glue it onto a stick as you can flick/turn one side uppercase letter other side lowercase letter. I also create a game ‘Guess the letter’. The child closed his/her eyes given a card, held it by the stick and feel the letter out. It was great.
