From Tiny Acorns Come Mighty Oak Trees...
Another theme I had for November was acorns. It seemed fitting for fall, as my Y5's watched a zillion squirrels scurry around the school yard stuffing their cheeks with acorns and then scampering off to bury them in their winter stockpiles.
As per your requests, I made acorn alphabet cards. You can use them for a variety of things, including flashcards, bulletin board aids, borders, and games.
I've included upper and lowercase letters+ a blank template for you to program as you'd like, with numbers, words, equations etc.
I've also make a tip sheet of what else you can do with the cards.

Since shapes are another Common Core State Standard, I made an interesting acorn shape easy reader. Students trace the shape as well as the shape word. There's plenty of room for students to also write the shape word and try their hand at drawing the shape themselves.
If your school district has also added the pentagon, hexagon or octagon, simply have your students add a page by drawing those acorns in themselves, and insert it before the last page.
