Alphabet Worksheets for Kindergarten

The old saying practice makes perfect holds true when learning how to id letters and sounds! Worksheets, crafts, and games during the day help students learn these basic skills without them realizing they are learning! These letter worksheets are the first of many to come this month.  Each packet focuses on one letter of the week.  Included are printables for centers, three crafts, and a spinning game inside each resource all focused on the upper and lowercase letter.  You will never have to scramble again for an activity with letters with these printables when the bundle is complete. The units for letter A and B are complete. Buy them individually or grab, the growing bundle at a DEEPLY discounted price. Every time a new unit is complete, you can re-download the bundle purchased to get the new units for free.

Each unit has 16 or more worksheets with 3 crafts that can be used for:

  • centers
  • whole group instruction
  • small group instruction
  • homework

Students love to learn with hands-on crafts, games, and printables that are engaging!

Each week in kindergarten we would do a “deep dive” learning about one letter for the week. Students listened to sound songs, read books, made mini books, worked on a craft for the letter during centers and I would send home practice worksheets so they could get more reinforcement with families.

A is for Alien

Letter B Craft BUNNYA is for Alligator

You can get the whole GROWING BUNDLE for all 26 letters of the alphabet!

Memorial Day Activities For Elementary

While some students may just see Memorial Day as a day off from school, it is a great time to teach them about Memorial Day and why we celebrate it. It is important for them to know about those who gave their lives while serving our country. 

Here are some ways you can teach elementary students about Memorial Day in your classroom.

  1. Start by giving them the definition. It seems simple, but this is something that not a lot of students know or understand. 
  2. Read a book about the holiday. Don’t Forget, God Bless Our Troops by Jill Biden and Raul Colon is a great book written by the First Lady. 
  3. Write a letter to a hero. If your students have any friends or family members that served they can write a letter to them. For other students you can have them write a letter to hero you select for them. This is a great way to give students perspective and a chance to express their gratitude. 
  4. Discuss the difference between Veterans Day and Memorial Day. On Veterans Day we celebrate those still living who served our country, on Memorial Day we celebrate those we lost. 

My Memorial Day Writing Activity is the perfect addition to your lesson!
