In this pack there are five pages the go with the book Eating the Alphabet by Lois Ehlert. The book is full of fruits and vegetables that walks you through many different foods that go with each letter of the alphabet.
The first three pages are alphabet letters matching cards.
Your preschooler or kindergartner will cut each card out.
Then they will follow the perforated line and cut the cards in half.
After they cut out all of the cards they can mix them up and work to match up the capital letter and lowercase letters back together.
This is great for letter recognition and for encouraging healthy eating. Your little one can say the name of each food as they connect the cards together.
Look at all of these foods you could find at a farmers market.
This is perfect for your lesson plans as you learn about the alphabet.
The next page is an A to Z maze. We used a do a dot marker to do the maze. Just follow the letters starting with the letter A and go in order until you find all of the letters leading you on a path to the letter Z.
The last card is a clip cards page. You can cut out each card if you want.
Then use a clothespin to identify the beginning sound of each image.
We did not have any clothes pins so we just used our do a dot marker instead. Works either way.
