Alphabet Booklets – A to E Printable Set Freebie

Alphabet booklets for preschool and kindergarten - letters A to E printable set from Homeschool CreationsThese alphabet booklet printables have been sitting in my queue for some time, but recently I had the chance to use them with a friend’s daughter (and also can’t wait for my nieces and nephews to use them). Each week we are working through a few of the letters and having some fun together. The booklets are very simple and fold up into a quarter-sheet size – perfect for smaller hands. This free alphabet printable  includes booklets for the letters A-E (more to come soon!).

A Peek Inside

alphabet-booklets-for-preschool-and-kindergarten-16

Each of the letter sheets prints off double sided onto 8.5″ x 11″ paper and folds to a quarter-sheet sized booklet. There are a total of 8 mini-pages for each booklet and inside you’ll find the following: 

  • Cover – color in the block letters as you talk about upper and lower case letters and the sound the letter makes
  • Finish the Maze – find your way through the beginning sounds maze
  • Trace the Letters – trace the upper and lower case letters
  • Do-a-Dot upper and lower case – use crayons, paint, stickers, or other art mediums to color the circles
  • Color the Picture Words (2 pages) – color and say the words that being with the booklet letter
  • Words I Know – write down all the words your child knows that begin with the letter

alphabet-mini-booklet-fold-and-cut-exampleOnce printed, cut along the horizontal dotted line. Stack the papers (pages are numbered) and fold in half on the solid line to create a mini booklet. Borderless printing is recommend (an option in most printer settings).

While it’s a little hard to show you every single page from every single booklet, here is an up-close sampling of what each booklet includes.

Toilet Paper Train Craft

train craft made with toilet paper rolls from Homeschool Creations - great project for the letter Tt unit

Here’s a fun toilet paper train craft to work on using recycled materials. You can make your train as long {or as short} as you’d like. We decided on four colors, so we had four cars on our train. Be sure to ask your child which is first and last. I forgot that the caboose is red…and had a four-year-old that was non-too-happy when he saw I made it the engine.

Learning Colors and Numbers with Uno
