Alphabet Activities for the Year!
Alphabet activities can be fun and engaging! These 25 alphabet activities for preschoolers teach all different parts of the alphabet including letter formation, letter recognition, and letter sounds!

Alphabet Activities for Preschool

Practice letter formation with these hands-on alphabet boards. Trace the uppercase and lowercase letter, write it independently, and then build it with play-doh.
Children pick a card from the deck and produce either the name of the letter or the letter sound (differentiate based on the group). If they get it correct they can keep the card, if not it goes to the bottom of the deck. When you pull a “Mix Them Up!” card, everyone pretends to mix a bowl and all cards go back to start.
