Having a structure for brainstorming can be helpful. One such scaffold is the alphabet — A to Z.
A children’s class I teach at church was going to list ways to pray for people from A to Z, so I devised this printable graphic organizer for the task.
Of course, you can use it for many different brainstorming jobs. Anywhere you need idea generation, the A to Z page can provide a framework that makes it easier than starting with a totally blank piece of paper. Consider these ways to use it:
- Brainstorming a blog post.
- Generating potential topics for an essay or paragraph.
- Reviewing key ideas from a unit study, for example Ancient Rome A to Z.
- Brainstorming vibrant verbs for a grammar assignment.
The blocks are large enough to accommodate several words for each letter of the alphabet. And the free download includes four different fonts. Choose your favorite or use them all for variety.
As always, I love to hear when you use the free printables from The Notebooking Fairy in your homeschool. If you send me photos, I will feature you in a Show Off post.
