Alphabet Coloring Pages

Updated on January 31, 2014

Alphabet Worksheets for Kids

Learning the alphabet is the foundation for learning to read or write. These alphabet coloring pages are great for helping children to recognize and then write their own letters. The worksheets can provide multisensory activities for the children (see list below).

For each letter of the alphabet there is a lower case outline letter for the children to color and / or decorate, a page with both upper and lower case letters and picture of an item beginning with that letter, and a sheet with an upper case letter in the shape of an animal beginning with that letter. This third type of worksheet reminds me of the program which I used to teach my daughter to recognize letters - Letterland.

These letter coloring pages will make a fun and educational activity for toddlers, preschoolers, and kindergarten students, or other children struggling to learn their letters.

The cute C is for Cat page above is brought to you by Llyn Hunter on Flickr, where you will find all the letters of the alphabet (which she has generously made free to use).

What to do with these alphabet coloring pages

These coloring pages will be perfect when you are teaching your children their letters and the sounds they make.

* color with pencils, crayons or paints

* print out several large letter sheets to make words.

* print out several large letter sheets and sort into alphabetical order

* use a coloring page with a large letter to do rainbow writing - use different colored pencils to trace over and over in the letter so that it looks like a rainbow (from the jazzles website)

* print on card and make a collage, pasting an appropriate filling in the large letter (from the jazzles website)

Another Fun Website With Great Letter Learning Ideas

www.sheknows.com

Here is a fun set of letters in upper case which are filled with objects starting with the letter. For example A has an alligator, acorn, ant, avocado, airplane, anchor, arrow, apples (did I miss any?) and N has nest, net, needle, nails, nuts, necklace, notebook, newspaper, Neptune (yes it does have some rings around it!).

      My mum had dementia and she loves colouring in. This will encourage her to not only colour the pictures in but keep her memory of the letters also. I am so glad that I have found your site.

      These are really nice. Great for parents and teachers. Sprinkled with dust from the Angel of the farmyard on a Back to School Field Trip and featured on 70 Super Angel Blessed Squidoo Pages.
