Alphabeastie Class Book

 Typefaces, fonts, typography....admit it, teachers have a tendency to be a little obsessed with the variety there is out there for us to use.  Although we stick to the standard Zaner-bloser for handwriting in my classroom, I definitely teach my kiddos that letters sometimes look different.  We are trying the common core theme "ABC Books and Children Who Read Them" for our first 6 weeks of school.  Now I know there are tons of ABC books out there, but Alphabeasties and other Amazing Types is one of my new found favorites! I shared it with my kiddos at the end of last year and they were fascinated.  An alligator made out of A's, an Octopus out of O's...truly AMAZING!  So perfect for a class book.  All you need is the printable Tina created for Common Core in this post, all 26 letters die-cut in black and a cute cover.  I hope you enjoy this book as much as I do, it's truly a work of art!

Book Cover

*When you download the book cover, please choose "download original" or the octopus doesn't show up. If anybody can tell me how to rectify this I would appreciate it!
