Strategy #2 Alphabet books

I would write the alphabet on a piece of paper to make a word wall and leave enough space for the students to write words for each letter of the alphabet. With the words that are already created, each student will pick out a word that they can best explain through their writing and art. Once students have chosen their word, they will create a page about their word. It will include the letter that they wanted an illustration and text. After they revised and edit their draft, they will make a final copy, and everyone will put their pages together to make an alphabet book.
