The Alphabet Tree and activity for preschool

by Deborah J. Stewart, M.Ed. on September 28, 2010

in Children's Books, Creative Art, Leaves, The Alphabet Tree

Today the children explored letters with alphabet stamps and a book titled “The Alphabet Tree” by Leo Lionni

This really was a very simple activity that included paper leaves, alphabet stamps, and ink pads. The teacher read the book to the children first and used this activity as a way to extend the concepts from the book into another learning opportunity.

Many of the children stamped the letters of their name on leaves. It is so interesting that the most important word for them is always their name!  Other children chose random letters and their focus was more on the stamping experience rather than trying to stamp a word.

Later the children will cut out their leaves and glue it to their own alphabet tree but for today – they took their time talking, stamping, and exploring all the different letters of the alphabet.
