In this activity, children choose a letter of the alphabet and use an ABC visor to represent it.
WHAT YOU NEED
- Pattern for the ABC Visor (print and copy)
- Old magazines (optional)
- Scissors (for the teacher)
- Markers, pencils or crayons
WHAT TO DO
- Review the alphabet with children. Have each child choose a letter of the alphabet and explain why that letter was chosen. (Possible answers: Because my name begins with the letter m; because I like dogs (perros) and perros begins with the letter p; etc.).
- Print the pattern for the ABC Visor and make a copy for each child. Tell children that they will be making an ABC visor for their letter.
- Tell children to write their letter in the left-hand corner of the visor (children should write the letter so that it is big enough to read).
- Then tell them to use the rest of the visor to make a drawing or find a photo of something that begins with their letter. If some children chose their letter because it is the first letter of their name, tell them that they could draw a picture of themselves.
- When children have finished, cut out their visors. Staple the paper strip to each visor. Let the visor parade begin!
