Dear Art Teacher
I am a librarian in an elementary school, and am looking
art project for a grade 3 teacher (and her 32 students)
that does not
involve paint - that uses their 'names' (letters)
Kids love to
create cartoons from letters. You can create
cartoon templates that children can use to create a
their first name initial or a list of vocabulary words.
can create their own designs. You can also create
collages from the
letters. Use precut large letters. Children
can then paste pictures
or items that begin with that particular letter onto the
letter. Use one letter of the alphabet for each
child. Laminate each
letter. Create a bulletin board after you finish.
You can also use
the name game song to create a rhyme about their song
and ask them to
create a drawing or construction paper 3 D design that
relates to it.
find many great ideas for using alphabets at
Do you have a question or need advice?
