Simple Alphabet Letter Crafts and Printables for Kids

Please take a moment and share this post!

Teaching the alphabet gets easy and more fun with my favorite letter crafts. These simple alphabet crafts make it easy for preschoolers and kindergarten students to practice learning letters and have fun at the same time! 

Learning the alphabet is a critical skill, but getting started teaching letters can sometimes be challenging. The good news is that there are lots of great ways to get started. For example, you could adopt a popular letter of the week theme complete with letter of the week crafts that focus on uppercase and lowercase letters.

My letter crafts and letter recognition activities will make it easy for your early learners to practice the letters of the alphabet in the classroom and at home. Plus, I’ll share my favorite themed snack ideas for every letter to reinforce your lessons!

Letter of the Week Crafts and Lessons

Recently, teaching with a letter of the week theme has lost some of its appeal.

I still really like the way a letter of the week theme breaks up the letters and gives students time to study each letter and letter sounds independently. However, there are some letters with multiple sounds that are more challenging and they might need more focused educational activities.

Kids learn at their own pace through repeated exposure so you’ll definitely want to spend lots of time reviewing each letter throughout the week. The letter crafts and activities in my printable bundles can help you spend extra time practicing letters in a way that’s fun and engaging for students.

Discover my Fun and Playful Alphabet Activities for ideas you can add to your letter of the week crafts this school year. 

Another thing to consider is that you might want to start by teaching your students the letters in their own names first. Learning to spell and write your name is an important first step in the alphabet learning process.

Fun Animal Alphabet Books

I love using animals to teach alphabet letters. There’s an animal for every letter of the alphabet! Reading storybooks aloud to preschool and kindergarten students is a great way to reinforce alphabet letters you’re learning in the classroom. 

Here are some of my favorite alphabet books about animals to add to your read aloud list for the school year:
