The Aussie Alphabet is a multi sensorial kit that enables the child or adult to use their hand to colour, ears to listen, eyes to read, mind to create and perhaps bodies to dance. All contents, coloured pencils, artist sketch pencils, sharpener and erasers, colouring sheets and nomenclature cards are of high quality suitable for everyone and make this a quality resource for your family.
This exquisite educational art set has been inspired and created through the collaboration of renowned Australian visual and musical artists, educators and children. It is designed to ignite any users senses as they plunge into the world of, colour, music and knowledge. This is a unique art set that offers the joy of colouring while having the added benefit of providing information and a means by which literacy skills are supported. The set has been developed with the National Early Learning Years Framework and National Curriculum Outcomes in mind.
The Aussie Alphabet Song gives the child the opportunity of learning the alphabet sequence and at the same time transfers some unique facts about each thing that is represented. The song offers a special addition because it is recorded with Indigenous and acoustic instruments that any child or adult might learn to play as they develop their appreciation of music.

The simple line art sheets provide letters printed in both upper and lower case in a clear font to aid the young child to absorb the shape of each letter and the easy framework within which to colour is designed to encourage confidence as young children colour within the lines.
The addition of more complex activity sheets allows the older child to build upon earlier skills and to begin to translate their knowledge of letter shapes into creative options and at the same time gain knowledge about our Australian wildlife, perhaps inspiring further investigation. Adults can enjoy the relaxation of colouring these more intricate drawings too and the option to trim these art sheets allows the final coloured creation to be mounted or even framed, if you choose to do so.
The set of nomenclature (picture-name) cards provides an opportunity to create an additional language activity where children can expand their comprehension of language as they come to understand that words can be an abstract representation of objects.
The blank page A4 sketch pad, which includes the lyrics to The Aussie Alphabet Song on the cover, will give you options to create other designs or even entice you outdoors to find some of the native wildlife and draw them yourself; the possibilities are as great as the creative mind of the child or adult.
