Electronic Alphabet Books
 
If you are looking for a great way to help first graders review the names and sounds of the letters of the alphabet in a meaningful way, and to provide associations for those students experiencing difficulty maintaining the letter-sound connections, then this project is for you. Armed with a new camera and a desire to learn more about technology, one first grade teacher decided to create a photo-illustrated electronic alphabet book about the farm next door to her school.

This project really took off when it was published online; "Mrs. Jackson's Morris Farm Alphabet Book Site" soon received over 50 e-mail messages with praise, comments, and questions. .Imagine the pride and excitement these students felt when their project won a National Semiconductor Innovative Internet Award. Their teacher, a 15-year classroom veteran new to technology, reports:

This one project allayed my fear of technology and hooked me. I am now learning to use both a scanner and a digital camera in order to share these skills with my students. I look forward to creating new ways of using technology across the curriculum.
