Alphabet Mini Booklets – Letters U to Z (Free Printable)

Mini alphabet booklets - letters U to Z printable from Homeschool Creations

Every few weeks I have been sharing a set of alphabet mini booklets with you. Today I have a brand new set to share for the letters U-Z. My friend’s daughter and I have been working through these booklets a few letters at a time and having fun together. The booklets are very simple and fold up into a quarter-sheet size – perfect for smaller hands. 

A Peek Inside

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

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.

Preschool Corner: Z is for Zoo

Before I forget ~ if you link up this week to the Preschool Corner, can you leave a comment letting me know that you did? That way I will be sure to see your link and visit! Sometimes my week gets so crazy and I forget to check back and I don’t want to miss your posts!

I picked a few books to focus on for the letter Z and then used Itty Bitty Bookworm’s Bo Curriculum {July Year 1} for some of the activities since she has plans for two books, Dear Zoo and also Goodnight Gorilla. We did so.much.reading this week it was almost comical. Kaleb loved the books too, and we spent one entire day on the floor just reading and re-reading the books together.

Be sure to check out the first giveaway in the 1,500 Subscriber Celebration today ~ it’s sure to be one that you will LOVE!! A FULL YEAR of Itty-Bitty Bookworm curriculum worth $300!!!

Alphabet Book

Our alphabet book activity was a quick and easy zebra puzzle.

Cooking ~ Animals in Cages

Itty Bitty Bookworm provides a fun idea for making zoo animals in their cages using animal crackers. Not so much real cooking, but fun in the kitchen and a yummy little treat. :)

Games

  • Animal charades ~ acting out the different zoo animals from the stories we read.
  • ZooKeeper, Zookeeper ~ played like ‘Doggie, Doggie, who has your bone?’

Math

  • We had fun sequencing the different animals in Goodnight Gorilla using printables from Itty-Bitty Bookworm
  • We weighed and compared our plastic zoo animals that we have around the house to see which ones were similar in weight or weighed more than others.
  • How many to make 5? We used a fun idea from Itty Bitty Bookworm to do some simple addition facts together.

Songs and Rhymes

The book Going to the Zoo is a great play off of Raffi’s song “Daddy’s Taking Us to the Zoo Tomorrow”, so this was a song that we sang a LOT that week. :)

Writing

I wrote the starter to a sentence for Zachary, “My favorite animal at the zoo is…” and Zachary finished the sentence and then he illustrated his sentence.
