Alphabets make up the core of preschool learning. The alphabet is the first thing a child needs to learn before anything else. Children need to learn each letter and the corresponding sound to pronounce and write words correctly. As they broaden their knowledge of the alphabet, they’ll learn the meanings of words and how to use them, expanding their vocabulary and self-expression.
But how do you teach a preschool child the alphabet? Parents and teachers need to be creative. While practice is essential to learning, you need to hold your child’s attention. The reward comes when your child knows their letters and letter sounds, and they can move on to the world of reading.
And, since every child needs to learn the alphabet as the first step to reading, writing, and vocabulary, we’re giving you these free preschool alphabet worksheet printables!
There are two sets of printables that will help your child with letter recognition, fine motor skills, and phonics.
These pages are perfect for homeschoolers, teachers, or to use at home for a little extra practice.
Children will love these fun alphabet activities, since all kids enjoy learning through play. Ask any expert on early childhood, and they’ll tell you that playtime can be valuable education time.

Alphabet Collage Printables
First, we have a set of alphabet collage printables. This is a terrific interactive way for children to learn or reinforce letter sounds.
First, print out the letter pages on white paper or cardstock. Next, your child can color in the letter. Then, you’ll need some glue and some old magazines or catalogs. You can even use small objects. The idea is to find things that start with each letter of the alphabet and glue them onto the page.
When your child is finished with each letter, you can staple the pages together or use paper fasteners to create a book. This will be something they can look at again and again to reinforce what they’ve learned.
Alphabet Tracing Worksheets
These alphabet tracing worksheets are another good way to help your preschooler learn the alphabet. Not only can they help children learn their letters, but tracing helps little ones with their fine motor skills as they trace the upper and lower-case letters from A to Z.
It’s a smart idea to laminate these tracing pages so that they can be used over and over again. Just have your child use a fine-tip wet-erase marker to write with, and these will hold up for for quite awhile. These markers should work well, and here is an inexpensive lamintor we like.
How you use these alphabet collage and alphabet tracing printables is up to you, but you might want to focus on one letter at a time, using both the collage page and the tracing page for each letter before moving on to the next.
