How Do I Teach My Kids to Recognize The Letters of the Alphabet?

Teaching your kids to recognize the letters of the alphabet is an important part of any preschooler’s development. It’s a skill that will help them when they start to read, and there are lots of fun activities to help them learn.  

Exposure to letters is an important starting point for teaching letter recognition. Start pointing out letters in books, in environmental print, and in their names.

As your kids begin to notice letters, you can then progress to activities like using magnetic letters on a refrigerator, abc games, letter activities, and letter books that can help your child learn and remember the alphabet.

Which Age is Best for Teaching the Alphabet?

Preschool is the perfect age to start teaching the alphabet! With simple activities such as matching letters, you can help your kids begin to develop their letter recognition skills.

You can also use songs, books, games and a variety of multi-sensory activities to build alphabetic knowledge. Creative learning activities are a great way to engage students in the process of learning and mastering the alphabet.

The great thing about these individual alphabet books is that they provide a variety of ways to practice all the abc’s. Your kids can work on

  • uppercase and lowercase letter recognition

The Cover Page of the Alphabet Booklets

The cover page on each book has both large uppercase and lowercase letters.

You can use the big, bold letters on the cover in many different ways to help your kids learn to recognize the letters of the alphabet and practice letter formation.

  • Kids can color the letters with crayons, color pencils, or markers
  • Provide q-tips and some paint. Kids can dip their q-tip in paint and create dots to trace the letters.
  • Provide a fun multi-sensory experience and show your kids how to finger-trace the letters.
  • Give your kids multiple colors of crayons, markers, or colored pencils so they can rainbow write the letters on the front of each book.

Letter and Sound Pages in the Individual Letter Books

Inside, the alphabet books for each letter all include 3 picture pages. These picture pages will help kids identify the sound associated with each letter. 

The text on each page is simple and predictable with the high-frequency words “is” and “for” so that kids can easily read it. They can also identify the uppercase and lowercase letters, and color the pictures.

Letter Formation Practice Page

The last page of each little booklet is a alphabet formation page (this is not included in the full-page version).  Kids can trace the letters and then write the letters.  Starting dots will help reinforce correct letter formation.

Printing Options for Both Classroom or Homeschool Use

I used to hate assembling little emergent readers, so I designed these little books so that they print four books per page, and they are super easy to assemble.

Before I show you how to assemble these DIY booklets, let me show you the printing options in the set. When you download the pdf, you will find a class set and a home set.

Class Set:  The class set has four copies of 1 book on each page.  This printing option allows you to print a set of books (multiple copies of 1 letter) for your entire class quickly.
