How To Use These Alphabet Block Patterns For Preschoolers:

Choose a letter to start with. You can work from A-Z or do the letters completely randomly.  

Some children are very motivated to learn the letters of their name, so that may also be a great place to start!

We start the activity off by stating which letter it is. We speak what the letter name is and then start with beginning sounds. I point to the picture, ask what the picture is, and then emphasize the beginning sounds.

Next we build the letter with the pattern blocks, while using the diagram on the sheet. When the letter is formed, we use the dry erase marker to trace the letter.

We also talk about what the pictures are on the left side. These are all pictures of words that begin with the letter on the mat. This is a great introduction or reminder of beginning sounds.

The last part of the mat is to count the number of each shape used. It is fantastic to integrate a little math skill practice with our literacy stations! We count the number of each block and write them inside the block picture.

When we are done with the first letter, we move the pattern blocks off and start on our next letter.

  1. Hi Laura, I’m not sure what you mean… all of these activities have been printed many times. However, I see that you are using a school email address and many times schools have extra security on their emails and printers that is not compatible with many websites. I would suggest trying for a different internet connection, device or email.

  2. I love your site. It has amazing activities! Thank you for providing these amazing activities!

  3. Just found your site today! What a great resource for us Grandmas that will have their grandkids around a lot during this corona-virus time off of school. Thanks for your great work!
