I want to share with you 7 alphabet books for kindergarten! I have had some of these books FOR. EVER! BUT they are still just as great as ever.
NOTE: This blog post contains affiliate links, but the ideas expressed are my own.
Alpha Oops! The Day Z Went First
Alpha Oops! The Day Z Went First is such a fun book!
It asks the question… What if Z went first?
It sort of turns into a mess.
There are some interesting images to notice. Do you see the little letters along the bottom of the page? As the letters get all mixed up, these letters do as well. Visually this book is fun, but it also opens up a conversation about what is fair and how to compromise.

A My Name is Alice
A My Name is Alice is a great book for alliteration!
I’m not sure why I do not have a photo of the cover of this book, but Alligator Arrived With Apples: A Potluck Alphabet Feast is a great book for alliteration as well. You may want to save this one for Thanksgiving time! There are some fun vocabulary lesson possibilities with these books too!
Tomorrow’s Alphabet has an interesting structure!
Cool… right? As you read the pages, you may want to keep the pictures to your self on some of these. Let the students listen to the words, thenl et students take a guess!
Alphabet City is such a visual book.. in fact, a great wordless book to inspire your young authors!. You could use it as a launching point to go on your own alphabet walk!
Q is for Duck
Q is for Duck is a fun guessing game book!
Animalia by Graeme Base was written 25 years ago.
Each page begs to be lingered over!
And when you zoom in, you will see even more!
I also wanted to share a few ABC activities that your class will love during centers or during your small group table time!
This Coconut ABC game is a big hit! This is an oldie but a goodie! Students don’t even know they are practicing their letters!
I added a few more cards to my Building Words unit. Students can practice matching the uppercase and lowercase letters. You can see it HERE. IF you have already bought it, just redownload it from “My Purchases” on TpT.
These activity cards are from my Anytime Centers. I made these centers so they could be used at any time of the year and they would not be tied to a theme! You can see the Letters and Print Concepts set by clicking HERE.
I was asked last year if I would make an ABC intervention unit like my Sight Work intervention unit. This allows you to put in the letters that you want students to focus on. Then the pages are automatically populated. You can try a sample at the end of this blog post.
You can find this unit by clicking HERE.
I hope this gives you a few ABC activity ideas you can use.
