Fall brings a whole new set of themes in lesson plans. Some of our favorite fall themes for preschoolers include pumpkin activities, falling leaves, acorns and more. We get excited about new themes and preschool activities in general, but when I break out the pumpkin theme, it’s extra special! The Free Printable Pumpkin Letter Recognition Spin & Stamp Activity for preschoolers and kindergartners is a great way to practice uppercase and lowercase letters with a great fall alphabet theme.

Learning the Alphabet in Preschool

PRESCHOOL LITERACY CENTERS
LOTS OF PRACTICE WITH LETTERS DURING PRESCHOOL SETS KIDS UP FOR SUCCESS IN KINDERGARTEN AND BEYOND.

Learning to identify and write letters takes a lot of repetition over time. The best way to get young children interested, is to vary literacy activities and make them feel more like fun games than “learning.”

The pumpkin alphabet activity is a great way for children to explore the differences/similarities in uppercase and lowercase letters. What I love most is the ease of prep for this printable fall alphabet letter activity.

Once you teach children how to use the pumpkin preschool activity, they can easily play independently.

I like to pair the literacy pumpkin activity with other pumpkin fun, like pumpkin books, pumpkin seeds, and a visit to the pumpkin patch for some real pumpkin fun!

In addition to learning to name letters, additional questions will get young learners thinking regardless of the preschool theme:

  • What’s the name of the letter?
  • What sound does it make?
  • Can you think of a word(s) that begins with the same sound?
  • Do some letters look the same/similar/different?

How Do the Pumpkin Spin & Stamp Worksheets Help Kids Learn About Letters?

Children are naturally curious about everything around them. Games and worksheets for preschoolers helps prepare kids to learn how to read when they enter kindergarten.

Background Knowledge: When children begin to learn about the shapes we call letters, it sets their brains up for success. Soon they will need to understand that each letter represents a different spoken sound.

Understand Reading: Children with letter knowledge can easily make the jump from naming different letters to understanding that letters are truly a code for how to read.

Improves Fluency: The goal before learning to read would be to be able to effortlessly name letters, both uppercase and lowercase. That ease makes the transition to learning sounds much less difficult.

Make Connections: Preschoolers often learn letter names, letter sounds, and how to write letters simultaneously. It helps them make connections as to how they all relate to each other and to the bigger picture of reading.

Extend the Activity:

Sensory Bin

Sensory activities for kids are important. Place the letter stamps in the sensory bin all mixed up. Then have students find a letter, then find the right sheet to stamp it on.

Talk

It helps when kids say the letter names as they play. You can then talk about the sound each letter makes and words that begin with that sound.

Play a Game

It’s easy to turn a pumpkin worksheet for preschool into a game! Kids can take turns spinning, or place the letter pages upside down so they don’t know what letter they might draw.
