We made this Zany Z using:
Chipboard cut from a cereal box for letter base
White construction paper
Black sharpie marker
Speaking of animal prints, we like to read:
Elmer by David Mckee. Unlike the other Elephants Elmer lives with, his skin is multicolored in a patchwork pattern. Elmer is always making the elephants laugh and they like him but Elmer begins to question if the elephants are actually laughing at him rather than with him. After finding a way to disguise himself to look like everyone else, Elmer discovers that the only way he will be truly happy is when he stays true to himself. A lovely message for the little ones with fun imagery.
Wow, we did it! Every capital letter in the alphabet! Now I know my ABC's next time won't you sing with me?
