FREE Alphabet Printables for Preschool and Early Kindergarten
Every good teacher needs an arsenal of teaching resources, especially alphabet resources, and what better than a giant list of FREE alphabet printables for preschoolers just waiting to be added to your preschool literacy centers?!
Have you ever witnessed that moment when your preschooler learns something new? When you witness the wheels turning as they are processing and then that moment…that moment when it all clicks together and they make the connection!?
For the preschooler and the teacher.
Those are the moments that remind us of the important work we do as preschool teachers. Those are also the moments that fill our buckets, too.
BUT…have you ever witnessed the moments following when said preschooler repeats the process over and over and over again just to make sure they get the same results each time? Because they now love the practice? Or when they turn and teach a fellow classmate what they have discovered?
What joyful moments!
But I have to admit, those don’t come without offering our preschoolers intention materials to work with. That’s why I love to have a variety of resources available in my preschool literacy center. For basic letter matching to more advanced beginning sounds identification, part of having the opportunity to witness those “ah-ha!” moments is having the right materials.
And that is exactly why I’m sharing nine free alphabet printables for preschoolers.
There might not be anything sweeter than witnessing a preschooler make the connection that the T in their name makes the /t/ sound in “Titus” or that “tractor” also has a /t/ sound.

The pictures in this printable make it so fun and full of learning! It didn’t take long for my 4-year-old to notice the differences in the plant’s growth and my 3-year-old is fascinated by growing plants. This game is sure to tie in well with your spring preschool theme, too!
This Spring Showers Letter Identification Game teaches, of course, letter identification and letter sounds, but also a little ten frame math, too. That in addition to a plant’s lifecycle. You can add this to your spring theme preschool literacy or math centers, but it’s also appropriate for a gardening theme, too. We pair these flat marbles with our Spring Showers game and kids LOVE it!
Race to the top games are fun for preschoolers because not only do they introduce very basic graphing skills but they are also an easy way to pair down the alphabet and make it more manageable for children.
This Rainbow Letters Race to the Top alphabet printable comes in two versions. One version goes in alphabetical order, while the other goes in the same order as my literacy curriculum, making it the perfect review game for my phonics lesson plans. This book is super fun for a spin on the racing theme while strengthening ABCs!

For may preschoolers, their first exposure to the alphabet are the letters of their own name. This is ideal because not only do preschooler have a natural interest in their names but the letters introduced re meaningful.
These name spelling practice sheets are ideal for teaching preschoolers not only how to recognize their names but also how to spell their name and write them, too!
There’s few things better than a free letter alphabet printable that could also double as a math printable. Not only do preschoolers learn their letter names with this card game, but they also get in a little math practice in decomposing ten.
