Colouring with Alphabets!

Updated: Mar 16, 2021

What is it

Alphabet Colouring pages

  • One alphabet on each page

  • Pictures to teach words that start with the corresponding alphabet

  • Presentation of the alphabet in uppercase and lowercase

Teaching objectives

  • Learn about alphabets (uppercase and lowercase)

  • Learn about the sound each alphabet makes

  • Learn about the words that start with the corresponding alphabet

  • Develop colouring skills and hand-eye coordination

  • Increase concentration and sustained attention

  • Develop fine motor muscles fundamental to writing

How to use

  • Present one alphabet at a time

  • Teach your child the name of each letter and point to each picture that begins with the corresponding letter

  • Encourage your child to use crayons or dot markers to colour in the circle with the alphabet letter and recite the letter

  • Point and recite each picture with your child “A is for ant, A is for alligator” and have your child repeat after you if possible

  • Allow your child to be creative with his colouring!

Teaching tips

  • Use a variety of colouring materials - colour pencils, markers, crayons, dot-a-dot markers, paint

  • Sing a familiar and catchy tune to introduce the different pictures to each alphabet!

  • Guide your child’s finger to trace the different stroke of each alphabet

  • If your child is not able to hold the colour pencil in a tripod position yet, it’s ok! You can...

- have him use a thick pencil/marker or a small broken piece of crayon to develop his grip

- shape his fingers to hold the pencil/marker in the correct position

- be fun and encouraging!

- It’s ok if he is not colouring within the lines yet. The objective now would be to colour with pressure.

Embed more learning opportunities

  • Receptive language: “Where is the bus? Point to the cow.”

  • Expressive language: “What’s this? What colour did you colour your cat?”

  • General knowledge: “Tell me something about the bicycle”
