Learning the Alphabet
I can’t think of a better way for toddlers and preschoolers to pass the time while waiting for the Easter Bunny!
Alphabet work in the primary years is really important because it starts building the foundational knowledge necessary to become a reader/writer.
As preschoolers learn and practice oral language, they become familiar with the sounds and words we speak.
As they begin to explore letters, they activate the portion of their brains that makes the connection between our spoken language and our written one.
How to Use the Free Printable Easter Coloring Pages
The Easter coloring pages for preschoolers could not be easier to prep! And you can cater to each of your students’ skills and knowledge by giving them the entire alphabet, or just the portions they are currently working on.
The free printable Easter coloring pages for preschool includes a page for each letter of the alphabet with directions at the bottom, “Color the Aa, etc.” Students must search for both upper and lowercase letters on each page.
Additional bunny coloring pages at the end include the directions, “Color your first name/last name/easter/EASTER.”
First, print the free preschool letter coloring pages. Black and white works, or you can go for the color.
Next, cut the pages in half, if desired. If not, each page will include two letters.
Decide how you want to implement the Easter coloring sheet into your classroom. To use at a learning center, laminate the pages or place them into plastic sleeves for protection. Students can pick a page, then hunt for the identified letter(s). They can place an object on the found letter(s), trace it with dry/wet-erase markers, or they can even just use their finger to point/touch the letters.
You can keep it super simple by just printing the pages in black and white, stapling the packet together and distributing to students. They can work at their own pace to find and color the letters.
It’s up to you how to use the printable alphabet coloring pages. You might even send a copy home for extra practice.
More Preschool Alphabet Activities
One of the reasons I love teaching the alphabet to emergent learners in preschool and kindergarten is the versatility. With a little thought, you can incorporate letter names into many themes and educational activities.
- Scavenger hunt: Hide both uppercase and lowercase letters around the room and challenge students to find them and match them. I like to use large foam letters from a floor mat, but ANY letters will do! (paper, plastic, magnetic, flashcards…)
- Letter matching activities in the sensory bin: Hide letters in rice, cotton, beans, or any other fill material. Students must find and match the uppercase and lowercase letters. At Easter time, use plastic Easter eggs. Write the uppercase letter on one half and the lowercase letter on the other half so students can attach them as they find matches.
- Play memory match: Place pairs of letters upside down in a grid and take turns flipping over two cards. Students must name any letter matches in order to keep them.
- Print more free alphabet coloring pages: You can easily find alphabet printables for a variety of themes! Keep the students engaged all year by switching up the themes.
