Need a fun way to review the alphabet with your kids? These Alphabet Interactive Mini-Notebooks are absolutely perfect for reviewing beginning sounds and letters. I even used them with Jaida, who was in first grade, as a review of beginning sounds and for some fine-motor skills practice.

This alphabet interactive mini-notebook is a great way to review letters and beginning sounds with your kindergarteners and 1st graders! Lots of different ways to review and build fine-motor skills too.

Recommended Grade Level:

Materials for the Alphabet Interactive Notebook

  • Paper
  • Paper Cutter
  • Staples

This is not intended to be a one-time, quick project. Instead you can choose to do one or two letters a week.

Also, you can choose to combine these all into one half-sheet sized book that is all stapled together or you can glue the main portion of the letter pages into a journal. Both options work very well.

When your students are first learning to do these pages, you will want to demonstrate a few times. Often, an accordion-fold is new to kindergarteners. They will likely need your help until they are more familiar with the technique.

Each letter comes on its own full sheet of paper with one half of the page being the main portion of the book and the other half of the page containing the two glue-in pieces of paper.

After cutting out all of the pieces (again, kindergarteners will probably need your help), start by making the “letter book”. Fold both the uppercase letter and the lower case letter backward to form the book. The portion with the triangle that says “back” will be the portion that you glue onto the matching triangle on the main page.

Then, create the accordion-fold of the picture strip. Your first fold will be up, so that the strip can be glued into the book.

You may notice that the dot-to-dot letters are not created in traditional writing format. **It is not physically possible to do that due to the nature of a dot-to-dot. Dot-to-dots are intended to be continuous, but most letters are not created in one continuous motion. Instead they are meant as a fun activity to discover the letter.** Since these books are intended for review, that should not cause any handwriting problems. 

There is also an additional page at the back of the book with a fun matching activity.

  1. I am homeschooling my 2 and 3 year olds. A fellow homeschooler showed me these and I love them! She said she downloaded them for free but I can’t find them anywhere, not even a sample, for free. Your prices are reasonable but we are on a very tight budget. Do you do promotions or sales I should look out for? I would love to get these!

    1. If you sign up for the newsletter, I offer a specific priced product for free every week. Also through the 5th you can take 25% off everything by using the code: BACKTOFUN during the checkout process.

  2. I love the interactive ABC books. I have a question about the dot to dot letters, why do you start at the bottom and go up. We always start at the top and go down. I just took all the dot to dots off the paper. Waiting to hear back from you.

    The book is great. I am going to use it with my Kinder class.

      1. I think you are wrong about letter formation. Some kids come to kinder wanting to start their letters at the bottom. They learn what they practice.

      2. I never said that the dot-to-dots are correct. However, it is physically impossible to create dot-to-dots that consistently follow correct letter formation. I have had hundreds of teachers purchase and use this pack with no problems.

  3. No, there is a variety of different formations within the dot-to-dots. As mentioned, they are for fun and not for a representation of how to write the letter.
