Alphabits is Wednesdays and Thursdays at 10:15am. Click twice on any pin to get more information on each pin.
Graduation! An alphabet rhyme/chant that relates what happens when the whole alphabet tries to climb a coconut tree.
Graduation! Sleepy letters of the alphabet get ready for bed.
Graduation! We did Action A to Z, where we did an action for every letter of the alphabet. Then the kids lied on the backs and they watched as all the letters from the alphabet went flying over their heads.
Graduation! At the end of the program, the kids all received their graduation certificates. Then they got to pose for pictures in front of the Alphabits sign.
