I love activities that can be used more than once. These alphabet learning activities do just that! All I have to do is laminate them, and now they can be used over and over.
These make great literacy centers, work for fast-finishers, and intervention group activities. Children take a mat, and form the uppercase and lowercase letter using play doh. Each mat has one set of letters, an image that starts with that sound, and the uppercase and lowercase letter in a traceable font.
Another alternative is to use cubes to build the letters. Children take snap cubes and place them on the mat to create both the uppercase and lowercase letters.
You know all of those craft supplies you hoard and never use? I bet you have some popsicle sticks laying around. So why not have children build the letters of the alphabet with them?
Alphabet Activities for Preschoolers at Home
These alphabet activities for PreK work great for homeschool settings as well as classroom setting. Like these dab-a-dot worksheets. You can use a variety of manipulatives to fill in the dots on the sheets. My go-to items include pom-poms, dot stickers, and bingo dabbers.
Here’s an example of a sheet that was completed using dot stickers.

The last activity I’d like to share today is our Sound Mats. Similar to the above play-doh mats, this works with the child using play-doh. However, this time, they will build an item that starts with a specific letter sound. This alphabet activity is perfect for our prek students who are beginning to learn all of their new sounds.
