Learning About Uppercase and Lowercase Letters:

LEARNING THE LETTERS OF THE ALPHABET

WHEN KIDS LEARN THE ALPHABET, THEY NEED LOTS OF PRINTABLE ACTIVITIES AS WELL AS HANDS-ON GAMES AND ACTIVITIES TO GAIN AUTOMATICITY WITH NAMES, SOUNDS, AND LETTER FORMATION.

Learning the alphabet is a tall order for young learners. And you can expect them all to learn it at a different rate!

Alphabet learning encompasses an entire year of introduction and practice because there is so much to do! Primary learners must learn to identify and name both lowercase and capital letters, name the sounds each letter makes, and learn how to write each letter properly.

The best advice I can give teachers? Patience and practice! Take a deep breath and continue providing ways for your students to master the skills that are so important for a strong foundation.

The free beginning sounds worksheets will help all of your students accomplish their goals.

What Can Preschoolers Learn From Letter Sounds Worksheets?

LETTER WORKSHEETS FOR PRESCHOOLERS AND KINDERGARTENERS

SINCE THERE ARE 26 LETTER SIN THE ALPHABET, LEARNING THEM ALL CAN BE DIFFICULT! MANY KIDS BEGIN WITH THE LETTERS AND SOUNDS IN THEIR OWN NAME.

When exploring letters with kids, it’s good to get them comparing/contrasting with other letters they know:

  • What are the letters in your name?
  • How many sounds do you have in your name?
  • What other words start with the /y/ sound?
  • Does letter Y have curvy lines, straight lines, or both?
  • Does uppercase Y look the same as lowercase y?
