Learning Uppercase and Lowercase Letters in Preschool

FREE PRINTABLE ALPHABET ACTIVITIES

LETTER IDENTIFICATION IS A KEY FOUNDATIONAL SKILL FOR LEARNING TO READ. IT ALSO SHARPENS VISUAL DISCRIMINATION SKILLS.

With so many letters in the alphabet, it can be overwhelming for kids to learn them all! The good news is you can start slow and build from there. This alphabet preschool worksheet, free, is a great place to start.

Often times uppercase letters and lowercase letters are taught in isolation, but it is important to teach kids both letters side by side so children can learn the letters and what makes them different.

While your child’s brain is working on this free preschool alphabet printable activity, their fine motor skills will also be working as they spin the spinner and use the alphabet stamps and their stamp pad.

A fun bee theme makes this a great activity to go along with your Spring and Summer lesson plans if you are a preschool teacher.

You can begin with A and work to Z, or you can begin with letters already familiar to a child, like the letters in their first/last names. Teaching children letters should be fun and active, not passive.

The Bee Theme Spin & Stamp free alphabet printable is a versatile activity that can be used in different ways. You can place it at a learning center, play it together with small groups of kids, or have them work independently at their desks.

The letter matching activity is simple! Just spin, identify if it’s upper or lowercase, then stamp the matching letter in the appropriate spot. You might also ask questions to spur additional thoughts:

  • What is the name of the letter? Sound?
  • Do you have this letter in your name?
  • Does the uppercase letter look like the lowercase letter? How?
  • What is your favorite letter? Why?

What Can Preschoolers Learn While Playing Spin & Stamp?

UPPERCASE AND LOWERCASE LETTER ACTIVITIES

LEARNING TO NAME LETTERS WITH EASE REQUIRES A LOT OF REPETITION OVER TIME. THE MORE EXPOSURE YOU CHILD HAS TO LETTERS, THE MORE LIKELY THEY WILL REMEMBER THEM.

Learning the alphabet is so exciting to preschoolers. After they have mastered the ever so popular ABC song, your child may be looking to start learning how to identify the letters.

Knowing how to teach the alphabet to preschoolers in a fun way is key. Playful learning activities that are hands on are a wonderful way to practice letters.

Having a print rich environment in your home or classroom is another great way to help your child learn the alphabet.

Keeping lots of alphabet books easily accessible for your child will also help spark your child’s curiosity about letters!

What Are The Benefits Of Spin and Stamp Activities?

Besides the fact that free printable preschool alphabet worksheets with a spin and stamp game are awesome for practicing letters, there are many other benefits to using spin and stamp activities for kids. Time flies, and soon your little one will be learning about proper nouns!

Learning is Fun

Spin and stamp activities, letter or word searches, and coloring pages keep learning fun and interactive for kids.

Calming

Sometimes young kids just need a safe space to calm down. Engaging the brain with an alphabet uppercase and lowercase printable could help a child refocus.

Hand-Eye Coordination

Stamping letter stamps, spinning a spinner, or cut-and-paste worksheets require eyes and hands to work together for the important development of hand-eye coordination skills.

Follow Directions

The step-by-step nature of a spin-and-stamp game improves listening and reading comprehension skills while giving kids a chance to take turns in a partner game.

How to Make The Activity

To Prep:

To use the stamp-it alphabet preschool printable simply print and go! There is no prep work needed. You can print on regular paper. You don’t want to laminate because kids will use alphabet letter stamps for preschool for the activity.

To create a spinner, place a paper clip around the tip of the pencil as shown below. Or you can place a paper clip on a paper fastener and insert the fastener through the center of the spinner.

To Play:

Hold the pencil down and use a finger to flick the paperclip and it will spin. Then stamp the uppercase or lower case letter that was spun. We love these kid-sized alphabet stamps because they are super easy for the kids to hold and see what they are stamping.

The spinner will land on either the uppercase or lowercase letter printable. Your child will then pick the stamp for that letter and press it onto the paper.

Extend the Activity:

Sensory Play

Stamp the letters into kinetic sand or play dough using these fun dough stampers to teach the alphabet through multiple senses. Write sight words, names, or CVC words.

Magnetic Letters

Hide magnetic letters in a sensory bin, or scatter them on a magnetic board. Kids find/pick a letter, then find the matching stamp.

Practice Sounds

Instead of just using the learning activity for letter recognition, children can learn letter sounds. Ask them to name a few words that begin with that sound (/b/ bee)!
