Here's a list I have in some old training notes of mine. I've used the first 
reference in teaching the alphabet, but I cannot vouch for the accuracy of 
the rest of the list.

Psa 18:2-3
Exod 16:16; Deut 4:34
Jos 23:13; 2 Kgs 4:39; 6:32; 7:8; 2 Chron 26:11; Ezra 7:28, 21; Neh 3:7;
Esth 3:13
Isa 5:25; 66:17; Jer 22:3; 32:29; Ezek 17:9; 38:12; Dan 2:45; 3:22; 4:20;
7:19; Hos 10:8; 13:2; Amos 9:13; Zech 6:11; Zeph 3:8
Eccl 4:8

By the way, though some of these could be coincidence, it is surely not 
coincidence that there are so many alphabetic verses in the כתובים! Or what 
do you think?
