Mission Activity
Imagine that you are a writer.  You have been asked to put together a book of two alphabet letters.  First you will need to pick two letters from the alphabet to use in your book.  Think about words that begin with each letter.  Use five pages of your book for one letter and five pages for another letter.  This means you will need at least five words for each letter.  Remember to draw pictures to go with your words.  If you have trouble thinking of words, use the alphabet fun website for help.
 Have fun and good luck!

Mission Activity Steps
1.  Visit each of the websites listed above.
2.  While visiting the websites, begin thinking of two letters you may want to use.
3.  Use the alphabet fun website to help you with ideas for words.
4.  When you return to your desk, you will be given crayons and a book for you to use.
5.  The first five pages will be used for your first letter.
6.  Write the letter at the top of the page and a word that begins with that letter.
7.  Draw a picture to go with each word.
8.  The next five pages will be for your next letter.  Do the same thing to these pages.
9.  When you are finished tell your teacher.
