Blogging Through the Alphabet- A

Blogging Through the Alphabet

A is for Apple and Artist

There are so many great things I want to do with my youngest, age 5 that seem to get lost in the shuffle of schooling his 5 siblings. I was excited to hear about the Blogging Through the Alphabet blog series, and thought what a great way for me to spend time each day with my little one, doing 'school' and working through the ABC's with him specifically!  Since I love Unit Studies and Five in a Row, I am going to take the opportunity to utilize those things along with our study. Prayerfully it all falls into place without too much work on my part!

So here goes Letter A

I decided to go with 2 FIAR books for the letter A

I am an Artist by Pat Collins

 So A is definately for apples and we utilized the Apple to be an artist.We had real and artificial apples on display and used watercolors to paint an apple.

All good studies need to incorporate food! We used #sixsistersstuff cookbook (enter to win a copy HERE) to make Bite Sized Apple Pie. Yummy and so much easier than making pie!

Click on the button at the top to see what other bloggers are doing with the letter of the week. I am hoping to incorporate more as we go and was so thankful for the special time with my youngest!


  1. We loved that book -- and yes, made an apple pie when we read it! Yum!

  2. I like your idea of using books as topics for blogging through the alphabet. I'm doing the alphabet out of order with my two preschoolers, so I won't have a post every week, but I'm looking forward to following along.

  3. Oh my goodness - what a GREAT idea! I might have to join you in doing the alphabet with my 5 yo on a few posts. Loved yours by the way. Stopping by from BTA. Blessings!

  4. How to Make an Apple Pie is one of our most favorite books!!!
