Letter of the Week- Thrifty Resources for Letter Recognition

Adopting a letter for a week is a super easy way to teach the alphabet along with all it’s sounds.  Here are a few of our favorite resources to teach these concepts.



Alphabet Lacing Cards

Alphabet Lacing cards are a wonderful way for kids to develop fine motor skills. Besides, it’s a fun, not-something-you-do-everyday activity that is sure to peak their interest.

Wipe-off Alphabet Mats

I’m a big fan of reusable, especially when it comes to educational resources for subjects that need regular practice. These Alphabet Mats could be used once, OR you can laminate them and use them over and over. These would be great for Centers or just a fun preschool activity at home.

No-Prep Worksheets

Sometimes, print and go is the best option. These No-Prep worksheets cover the uppercase and lowercase letters, using activities in prewriting, letter confusion sorts, handwriting, sounds, and more.

Alphabet Playdough Mats

Another great, hands-on activity is letter formation using Playdough or Madmatter (our preference).  You can print out letter templates OR use these Alphabet Playdough Mats which include demonstration, template, and word using the key letter.

Alphabet Cards

Alphabet cards can be displayed or used for playing multiple games. Check out the different ideas for uses HERE. Our kids like to lay them out and have me call out a letter sound for them to find. (Getting a fun pointer, makes this game even more fun.)

  1. Hi Jessica, how is school going this fall? Our kids are back in it big time and Liam is doing good in kindergarten. He told Me after the first week he didnt have to go anymore as he knew everything already! The alphabet cards are a great way to help them recognise their letters. Thanks for the post , Terri xo.
