ABOUT THIS INTERACTIVE  

Overview

 

 

Engage students and build phonemic awareness by using Alphabet Organizer in the classroom. Students create an alphabet book or alphabet chart with words for each letter of the alphabet. Or choose just one word per letter and upload an image to help early readers make a visual connection between the word and the beginning letter.

Alphabet Organizer features our worksaver so that students can save a draft of their unfinished work or share their final work via e-mail.

Lesson plans on ReadWriteThink illustrate various examples of how the tool can be used in the classroom; for ideas of how to use it outside the classroom, see Alphabet Organizer in the Parent & Afterschool Resources section.

Limited access to computers? Print a blank alphabet chart or blank†alphabet letter pages.
