Alphabet Art Project for 1st Grade


alphabet art

This is a great project to try at the beginning of the year or as your students are reviewing the alphabet and beginning to learn to write words and phrases.

I got this idea from the book Dynamic Art Projects for Children.  Ours are not exactly as the ones in this book, but very similar.

We started by looking at the art of Stuart Davis and reading the phrases, words and numbers that we saw in his artwork.  The students analyzed the pictures and discussed why he might have used words in his work and what the pictures remind them of.

The students included letters, numbers and words in their pictures and then stacked, turned and connected them to create an interesting design.
