Today we bring you a fun post about Rhythm of the Home sponsor Alphabet Glue! Alphabet Glue is a downloadable e-magazine for families who love books. Filled with activities, printables, projects, and plenty of inspiration, Alphabet Glue was created in hopes of helping more families to incorporate creativity, imagination and all things literary into their everyday routines. Each issue contains leveled book recommendations organized by theme, bookmaking tutorials, storybuilding activities, and hands-on projects that complement favorite titles in children’s literature. From stories to science experiments, Alphabet Glue has a little something for everyone.
The magazine is published six times per year, and is a one-woman production, being written, photographed and self-published by Annie Riechmann. Annie is an educator, mama to two little ones and has a deep affection for striped socks, unfinished projects and big bunches of kale. Annie blogs about everything from dangerous laundry piles and picking too many blueberries to science experiments and kid’s literature on her blog, Bird and Little Bird. She also happens to be an associate editor here at Rhythm of the Home.
Alphabet Glue makes an excellent companion to a homeschooling curriculum, or a fantastic guide for families looking to weave more creativity into their afterschool and weekend times. Today we are sharing photos that families have taken of Alphabet Glue projects and activities as they have come to life in their own homes. You’ll find pictures of some favorite bits of Glue, as well as links to posts by some of our favorite bloggers where you can learn more about how their families are using Alphabet Glue to encourage family-wide creativity and collaboration.
