Why Use This Tool

Help children understand connections between words and their beginning letters. Alphabet Organizer allows children to create a calendar-style alphabet chart or letter pages for an alphabet book. Include several words per letter, or enter just one word per letter and upload an image to visually reinforce beginning sounds for early readers.

Alphabet Organizer features our worksaver so that children can save their unfinished work or share their final work with friends or family.

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

Here’s What To Do

Let the child choose to create an alphabet chart or book and the topic. (Animals, places, and names of friends and family are natural choices!) There are two options for completing the interactive Alphabet Organizer: one word per letter or more than one word per letter. By choosing one word per letter, the child can upload a picture and include a short description about the word. After choosing an option, simply click on a letter to fill in words.

Don't forget to save or print before starting a new project! The child can even e-mail their final work-of-art to a friend or relative.

More Ideas To Try

  • Create an alphabet book. Print out a blank page for each letter of the alphabet and ask children to come up with words they know or new words they have learned about a topic. Choose the Letter Pages option when printing and have children illustrate the pages. See the sample summer ABC book page featuring the words sun and swim.
  • Print out a blank alphabet chart and use it on road trips or field trips. Children can play “I Spy” to try to fill in every letter with something they see. If the scenery is lacking, have them thumb through books or magazines to find items for their charts.
  • Go beyond English. Use the third option (space for one word and notes) and use the tool to learn foreign words or phrases. Bonne chance! (That’s French for good luck!)
