Alphabet Mats

Are your pre-readers learning the ABC’s? Using these Alphabet Mats are an interactive and hands-on way for preschoolers to practice letter formation, fine motor skills, and much more! 


Letter Recognition Activity


Alphabet Mats:

As pre-readers begin to identify the alphabet, they learn the different shapes of the letters. They then practice forming and writing capital and lowercase letters. Using interactive letter mats like these are a fun way for pre-writers to work on writing strokes, letter formation, and more! 


How To Use Alphabet Mats:

To prepare these letter mats, print them on white card stock or copy paper. Next, laminate the mats so your kids can use them over and over. Or, you can put the letter mats in dry erase pockets. 


These letter mats can be used for as an independent activity for literacy centers, morning tubs, or as an enrichment for early finishers in any early elementary classroom or homeschool. 


Play Dough Alphabet Mats:

Rolling and shaping play dough into shapes is not only a great for sensory play, but it also a hands-on way for preschoolers to practice forming letters.
