I’m often asked via email; “Where do you get those ABC pages?”
When my eldest was a toddler I had a brainstorm for teaching letter sounds. Naturally, the templates I imagined weren’t available ready-made. In a crazed fit of homeschool-momishness, I stayed up past midnight tweaking and wordprocessing, until the letters looked as they ought.
My late-night session paid off as each little PrairieFrog used these custom printouts. I recently converted the files to GIFs for consistent formatting across cyberspace and can now share.
These blackline, open face, lower and upper case alphabet pages (such as my children decorate when learning to read) make great coloring sheets, or can be a hands-on activity while learning letter sounds. I like to fill the shapes of the letters with tacky glue, place the paper on a cookie sheet and then let children arrange beads, feathers, bits of sponge, sequins, or other media within the outlines.
Please make sure your printer is set to “landscape,” as the letters are formatted for lengthwise printouts. You may also need to adjust your printer settings to scale the images to the page.
