Last year was the first time that I did an Alphabet Countdown for the end of the school year. It was the best thing I have ever done, and made our last month of school so fun and exciting.

I came up with some activities to do during our countdown, and each student completed their own alphabet book. For this blog post, I have added a freebie for you- a calendar that you can send home to families or use for planning in your classroom.

Alphabet Countdown Book

On top of having a letter activity that was easy to prep every day, my students completed a page of their alphabet book every day. They drew a picture of something that begins with that letter, and traces the letter.

I was worried that my students would get bored of doing the book- but they were so excited to complete the page every day! They would discuss what they wanted to draw, and sometimes drew more than one thing.
