My mission for each school year to have each child in the class identify all 26 letters and sounds. Singing, dancing, and crafting happen to be my favorite ways to teach, and I admit that I get REALLY excited when I have students who enjoy learning with those same elements. Luckily for me, singing, dancing, and crafting to learn information applies well with most kids. :) :) :) For this reason, I have found silly kid songs to go along with each letter of the alphabet!
Letter Craft Pack
This letter craft pack that we use every week in our classroom contains an easy craft for each letter of the alphabet. The craft connects directly to a silly song (or on occasion, a learning activity). There is a fill-in and a drawing space on each craft that allows for differentiation. The cutting involved with this packet also allows for growth in the area of fine motor throughout the your learning.
Letter A and The Ants GO Marching
As we complete our weekly letter study each day, we sing the kids’ song of the week and build an anchor chart with pictures that start with our special letter. On Friday, we create the correlating craft from this pack. Children refer to the anchor chart to complete the fill-ins on the crafts. They look forward to finding out what our letter craft of the week will be, and they love to copy from the anchor chart!
For example, here is our letter A Craft Pack. The letter A craft says, “A is for ant and _____.” Students fill in the blank, using word resources from our letter anchor chart. They refer to that same anchor chart to draw a picture to go with it. Writing and drawing one word is the primary goal. This task is easily differentiated. Some students might need help with writing the word, but they will draw the pictures on their own. For some students, I write the word with a yellow marker for them to trace. Others benefit from a sketch of a drawing for them to color. On the other hand, some students draw more than one picture in the space, and some label the "extra" pictures, too. Other students come up with their own words and sound them out on their own, too. These activities can be completed whole-group (which is what I'd recommend modeling at first), or during center time, once the kids get the hang of the process. After some modeling and practice for the first few projects, I simply project the cover of the product on the board, and the kids take off from there.

Letter P and Peanut Butter and Jelly
We have to share just one more letter craft example! When a letter song of the week is introduced, the kids always try to guess what we are going to craft. I must also add that they reeeeally love following step-by-step instructions to make peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for the letter P. It is so fun to “cook” with paper!
