My toddler is really into learning both capital letters as well as lower case letters. And I have had some really good times finding lots of different ways to make the whole alphabet into a fun activity. One activity that we are really enjoying are these printable apple ABC’s from Fun-A-Day.
The apple letters printable can be used in a variety of ways, and with a multitude of materials. No matter how you use them, your students will be practicing important early literacy skills with the apple printable ABCs.
Another great free printable apple worksheet we love is from Simply Be Wild & Free. This free printable is more of a traditional letter practice sheet that is great for letter recognition and writing practice.
Let’s Talk About Lower Case Letters
Most of the time when we start teaching the alphabet the upper case letters are the first ones that we start with. However, think about which letters you see the most when you are reading. You see way more small letters than big ones. So how silly that we drill the uppercase letters to our little learners and often leave out the lower case letters.
Lower case letters printables are so helpful for just this reason. Knowing and recognizing these lower case letters will help younger kids when they are ready to start learning to read. Super Full Of Delight offers free printable flashcards that have both the upper and lower case letters. This is a great way to build the recognition between both letter types.
Another one of my favorite places to grab free printables that include lowercase letter is The Primary Parade. This website is overflowing with tons of amazing resources for teaching the alphabet to your little ones.
SlySpoon is another resource for printables that include lowercase as well as upper case letters. She has some dot worksheets that are perfect for toddlers who are practicing fine motor skills as well as letter tracing activities to practice writing skills.
Upper And Lower Case Letters Printables
With these free printables you will find different types of coloring sheet, tracing sheet, flashcards, and more. You will have no problem at all finding a good use for the free alphabet worksheet for kindergarten students, or even an older child in 1st grade, 2nd grade, or beyond.
Little Bins Little Hands has the most adorable Lego letter activity that has been very popular with our homeschool group. I love the opportunity that it gives to the younger ones who are not quite ready to start tracing letters and begin handwriting.
I have also put together so free printable resources that I made to use with my own children. The pdf file I have put together is filled with printable letters, coloring sheets, flash cards, games, tracing sheets, and tons of alphabet activities. Click here to download yours!
Fun Alphabet Activities
For a twist on the sensory bin I found an I Spy Alphabet sensory bottle from The Best Ideas For Kids. I love that we can have the fun and sensory input without the mess.
Learning Cursive Letters
I would be remiss if I did not include a resource for practicing in cursive. Cursive writing is so beneficial for children and often improves spelling and reading skills, as the continuous flow of the letters can help with letter recognition and word decoding
Homeschool Happiness offers free cursive writing sheets to download that are perfect for this.
I am so glad that you are taking the steps to introduce the alphabet to your children. Teaching the alphabet is crucial as it forms the foundation for literacy skills so you are setting your littles up for great success.
Keep in mind that making it a fun activity enhances engagement and retention, turning what could be a mundane task into an enjoyable learning experience. Fun activities stimulate a child’s curiosity, making them more likely to actively participate and absorb information. The positive association with learning fosters a love for reading and sets the stage for future academic success. Ultimately, combining education with play ensures that children not only learn the ABCs but also develop a lifelong enthusiasm for language and knowledge.
