I went back to the basics with this product! You see, it wasn’t created for my first or second grade students, but rather my own three (almost four) year old! She will be in preschool this fall, and she LOVES “playing school.” We have been drawing, coloring, reading, cutting, gluing, etc. But… we HAVE NOT focused on identifying or learning letters. She knows the ABC song and a few letters that are important to her… but that is it! She is just now beginning to really show an interest in learning her letters. She wants do what the “big kids” do at school. And she just LOVES sitting at her little desk. So… I will take advantage of every teachable moment and help her learn as much as she can! That is... As long as she is interested!
This pack is designed to teach letter identification in a fun and interactive way! It does not focus on correct letter formation, but simply learning to recognize the uppercase and lowercase letters! And… of course, I also reinforce each letter sound as a new letter is introduced.
I really hope your kiddos enjoy it as much as my little Sophie does!!!
Inside this bundle you will find...
Three Interactive Printables for Each Letter
-The first page is simply a large letter with three pictures that begin with the letter sound. Your kiddos can color the letter, paint the letter, or glue just about anything on the paper! Some of Sophie’s favorites are gluing cheerios, noodles, construction paper squares (my girl loves to cut), glitter (NOT my favorite – ha!). We also like using play dough!
-The second printable is for sorting letters. Your students will need to cut, sort, and glue the letters in the correct group.
-The third printable is used to distinguish between the uppercase and lowercase letters. Your students will need to use a pencil and paperclip to spin and color a letter. Dotting the letter is a good idea too! My little Sophie likes to make this page a game. We each take a color and take turns spinning. The first person to get four in a row is the winner.
Letter Search and Color
This activity is basically a letter search! Your students will need to find various letters and color each letter the correct color. I have included five letters on a page – one page of uppercase letters, and one page of lowercase letters.
Roll a Letter
The last section is used for students to begin tracing the letters. Your students will roll a die and then trace the matching letter. If your kiddos aren't ready for tracing, you could always color or use paint dots.
