Farm Theme Preschool Alphabet Activity: Spin & Stamp

Once springtime comes around, a great way to work on letter recognition is through hands on farm activities for preschoolers. When teaching young children letters, repetition is key. This Free Printable Farm Theme Preschool Spin & Stamp Alphabet Activity is an awesome repetitive activity that will help your preschooler learn to tell the difference between lowercase and uppercase letters.

An added bonus of this activity is that spinning the plastic spinner and pressing the stamps onto the paper are both excellent activities to strengthen fine motor skills.

Pre-reading skills are skills that children have that allow them to be successful at learning to read.

There are a few things you can work on with your preschooler to help build their pre-reading skills!

You can print one letter a time, pick a few letters to print, or print the entire alphabet and have them ready and on hand whenever you need them.

Normally I suggest laminating my printable activities. Since children will be using stamps on this one, you may not want to laminate it.

Use a plastic spinner with a clear overlay, and set it over top of the circle with the capital letter and lower case letter. Let your child push the spinner.

The spinner will land on either the upper case letter or lower case letter. Your child will then pick the stamp for that letter and press it onto the paper.

Once one letter is completed, you can move onto another one.

Here are some ideas for what order to do the letters in:

  • work your way alphabetically from A-Z
  • do the spin and stamp activity for every letter of your child’s name
  • if you do a letter of the week, use that letter’s spin and stamp activity for a center
  • practice the letters of two and three letter sight words

More Ways To Use This Uppercase and Lowercase Letters Practice Activity:

  • Lay out three or four different letter stamping papers. Hide all of the stamps for the free farm themed activity into a farm sensory bin. As your child finds the stamp, have them stamp it onto the correct paper.
  • After you have completed the uppercase and lowercase letters printable, practice counting by adding up how many of each you stamped.
  • Practice writing the letters instead of stamping them.
  • While you have your stamps handy, practice stamping your child’s name or sight words onto a piece of construction paper.
  • To add some movement to the activity, after your child stamps the letter onto the paper, have them make the letter using their body.
