Supporting Early Reading Skills with Alphabet Posters

Kids need to know their letters in order to learn letter sounds and eventually blend sounds together to form words. Besides providing some beautiful wall art, what else can these free alphabet printables pdf posters help with?

Background Knowledge: When students understand letters of the alphabet and can name and match them, they have a lot of knowledge to draw from when they start learning letter sounds and basic decoding.

Connect Letters to Words: Learning letter names helps children make important connections, like each letter stands for a particular sound and when we string them together it makes a word.

Connect with Nature: Searching for acorns among the falling leaves brings a natural element into an otherwise academic activity. Kids can connect with nature while you prepare the letter activity, making it a special time.

Increases Automaticity: The more activities and games children play while learning letter names/sounds helps them develop automaticity. The easier it is to recall and match letter names/sounds, the easier it will be to learn to read.

How to Use The Activity:

Step One:

First, choose either the full-size pages or half-page printable alphabet posters. Then, print and laminate the posters for durability.

Step Two:

Add the free printable preschool alphabet printable posters to your literacy center! Kids can use these to recognize letters, correct letter formation, match letter manipulatives to the right poster and match correct beginning sound pictures to each letter.

Extend the Activity:

Letter Tracing Practice

Once laminated, kids can practice tracing the letters over and over with a dry erase marker.

Work on Beginning Sounds

Read the three words together then challenge kids to come up with some other words that begin with the same letter.

Picture Matching

Provide a basket of simple pictures (or objects for a more engaging approach) and have kids match work on sounds and letter identification by matching the correct letter poster.
