Students learn ABCs through creative fashion

From A to Z, Chocowinity Primary School kindergarteners offered a unique take on the ABCs during a recent Alphabet Fashion Show. Each child wore a vest representing a different letter of the alphabet, modeling them on a runway in the school’s gym.

CPS kindergarten teacher Emily Houston says the show was the culmination of an ABC Boot Camp program that teaches kids a new letter over the course of two days.

“At the very end, we send home vests and assign them a letter,” Houston said. “Then they decorate their vests according to what letter they’ve been given, so we make it a home project as well.”

While the show is the final piece of that lesson, it’s also a celebration of a significant milestone for the kids.

“We’re done with the alphabet, they know their letters and sounds and we’re just having a big party for it,” Houston added.

HIGH FASHION: Each student decorated their vests with objects that started with the particular letter they were representing.
