All About the ABCs!

There's something so thrilling to me about teaching the alphabet. Maybe because it opens the door to learning, but I just love it! I am always looking for fun and engaging ways to get my students practicing identifying and forming their ABCs, so I was really excited to put these interactive printables together!

First of all, my BBFF Tara found these adorable road letters, and after observing my boys so actively engaged in a little game of cars during morning duty the other week, I just knew I had to incorporate them into a center activity!

They will practice the correct path of motion by "driving" a toy car across each letter.

I also included a space for them to practice writing the letters with the ever enticing dry-erase markers ;)

 After we learn the correct letter formation for each letter, we will continue to practice them on these little printables. {p.s. If you haven't checked out Tara's KinderPhonics, you are missing out!! Her first unit teaches the path of motion for each letter and it is amazing!}
{After the students write in the missing letter on the alphabet line, they will touch each letter and say its name. Hopefully after 26 pages of practice, they will eliminate the ever so popular "elemeno" letter ;)}

I also created some fun interactive journal pages! I *think* these are my favorite! I am slightly obsessed with how each page turned out!



We will turn these pages into an interactive journal that my students can refer back to during their writing. I also thought it would be fun to make it into a dictionary, where we can write our sight words and other words we need to remember how to spell!


I also made some fun fine motor alphabet letters for my students to get some fun, hands-on learning! There are so many fun things you can do with these letters!
Decorate them with stickers!

Paint the letters with q-tips!

Decorate the letters with cereal!

Dot the letters with bingo daubers!

The ideas are endless!

Finally, I created some more practice pages to help with identifying and writing uppercase & lowercase letters.
Spin & Write

Letter Sort

You can find all of these activities in my TpT store!

  4. I think this is exactly what I was looking for. I'm a new RTI teacher and was recently assigned a group of 5 wonderful little kinders that need additional support with their letters. Thanks so much for the great ideas and wonderful resources.
