Have a go at printing the letters of the alphabet at home
You will need:
- Polystyrene tile
- Paint roller
- A4 paper
- Pens (various colours)
a) Think of your favourite book
b) Choose a letter of the alphabet to do with that book- it could be:
- The first letter from the title,
- The first letter of the main character’s name,
- Or the first letter from the author’s name
e.g. G for Gangsta Granny
e.g. D for David Walliams
a) Take a Quick Print polystyrene tile
b) Use a pencil to inscribe your letter into the tile (you’ll need to do the letter backwards)
c) Use a roller to cover your tile with paint
d) Turn your tile upside down and print your image onto the paper
a) Use the felt tipped pens to write about your chosen letter of the alphabet
D is for David Walliams.
His books are really funny.
My favourite book is Gangsta Granny.
I would like to go to the Tower of London.
b) Decorate the page with things to do with the book
e.g. for Gangata Granny I might do a thief with a swag bag.

The book Old Aunt Elspa's ABC was designed to teach children the alphabet and help them learn to read.
