Creating a nature photo story An April Alphabet got me thinking. Since being on leave, I’ve had the luxury of more time to explore my natural surrounds–to walk and wander on nearby beaches, fields, forests and trails–and to become more aware of letters (and numbers) in nature. I’m reminded of the times children brought in a curled up witchetty grub that looked like an ‘o’, a caterpillar lying straight on a leaf that looked like an ‘l’ and a stick in the shape of a ‘t’.
Finding letters in nature is a fun way for children to learn the look, names and sounds of letters.
Some letters seem to appear more often than others, such as c, j, l, o, t, v and y. And I wonder why?
What are some of the letters made of?

What letters or numbers have you seen in your natural environment?
