How Do I Teach The Letters Of The Alphabet?

Teaching your preschooler the alphabet may seem like an overwhelming task!    

Don’t worry, you’ve got this!  Just keep it fun and simple!

  • One of the best things you can do is read and look at books with your little learner!
  • Keep the activities multi-sensory!  Sing and listen to songs about letters, trace letters with your fingers, and talk about the letters you see on signs!
  • Labeling objects in your house with words on index cards can help little ones be surrounded by words and letters!
  • Play with manipulatives like wooden letters, magnet letters, letter stamps, and foam letters!   
  • Get creative with your letters!  Incorporate letters into your arts and crafts time!
  • Peak your child’s interest by helping them learn to spell their name, or even just learn the first letter of their name to start with!

Other Ways To Use These Alphabet Coloring Pages:

  • Cut out the letters (another great fine motor skill activity!) and paste each set of uppercase letters and lowercase letters onto pieces of construction paper.  Help your little one find pictures from magazines to cut out and paste them onto the construction paper.  Put all the pages together to make a letter scrapbook!
  • If your little one isn’t into coloring let them fill in the letters with stickers, erasers, or trace the patterns with glue and sprinkle glitter on them!
  • Laminate the coloring pages after your little one colors them!  Hole punch the corner and put them on a ring for an adorable alphabet book!
  • Cut the letters out individually and use them for a matching game!
  • Play a letter recognition game!  Put out three or four of the letters onto the table.  Have your little one select the letter that you call out from the letters displayed on the table!  Add or take away cards to differentiate and make the game easier or harder!   (If your little learner likes this game they will LOVE these I Spy Alphabet Printables!)

  4. Hi!

    I recently discovered your site am impressed with your printables! Nice work! I am a preschool teacher and was wondering if it is ok if I use your printables for my class? I do not know what your terms of use are. Unfortuately, my email is full. (I am in my first year working as a teacher/director along with being a graduate student and having family obligations- so I found it too hard to keep up with email. I would use my husbands in order to download it if necessary.


  5. I found these at the beginning of the school year. They are PERFECT for my class!! I print one out each week and give it to the kids to color and take home. Now they all made a book with them. Very great printable. Thanks so much for your input in our school!!!
