This fun set of alphabet worksheets contain a variety of activities to reinforce literacy skills for little ones.
I’ll explain more below, but this worksheet packet is designed to help preschoolers work on handwriting, letter recognition, fine motor skills, and beginning sounds.
Each of the 26 pages included in this packet is designed the same way so once you’ve used one, your kids can settle into a pattern with subsequent pages.
In the top left corner of each page, there is an uppercase and lowercase letter. With this box, encourage kids to name the letters, say their beginning sounds, and then trace the letters with their fingertip.
I can paint.
This is such a fun way to practice their letters. Provide a small amount of paint and a q-tip or toothpick. Have kids follow the numbered arrows as they dot paint the letters with q-tips/toothpicks.
This is a great activity for a few reasons. First, it reinforces letter recognition and letter formation. Second, painting with q-tips or toothpicks is a great way to have preschoolers strengthen fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination.
I can color.
On the second row of each page, the left-hand box features uppercase and lowercase letter outlines. Kids will color the letters in another fun fine-motor activity.
I can build.
In the right-hand box on the second row, kids will find letter outlines that featured numbered arrows again. On this activity, however, kids will build the letters with playdough.
Have kids roll small playdough “snakes” with a color of their choice. Follow the numbered arrows to lay the playdough on each letter outline.
Rolling, pinching, and manipulating playdough is a great way to strengthen fine motor skills.
I can trace.
In the next section on each page, kids will trace a line of uppercase letters and then a line of lowercase letters. Remind them to follow the proper letter formation featured in the previous activities.
I can write.
At the bottom of the page, you’ll find the last two activities. The first activity has kids write the featured letters on their own.
I can color.
Lastly, kids will color a picture of an object that begins with the sound made by the featured letter.
With all of these activities complete, your preschoolers and kindergarteners should have a great handle on the alphabet – letter recognition, beginning sounds, and letter formation.
Alphabet books are a great way to help preschoolers and kindergarteners learn their letters. And they don’t have to be boring, either!
