Free Alphabet Worksheets

Homeschooling my children William and Catherine has proved what I think is the most vital factor in teaching the alphabet:

Keep it fun.

Preschool alphabet activities need to show your child that all these meaningless squiggles on a bit of paper lead to something fantastic - a word!!!

I know it sounds silly, but sometimes I think we all take writing for granted without considering how long it took us to invent it!

So you'll see our homeschooling preschool curriculum activities are all designed to make teaching reading fun.

wolf rock painting

Rock wolf hand painted by my homeschool daughter Catherine.

As you can see, Catherine has become a very talented young artist since she made these worksheets for you.

She's now runs her own successful on-line Etsy shop, selling hand painted rocks and animal jewelry for animal lovers.

It's nice to know that homeschooling gives you the freedom to discover and encourage your child's passion, whatever that may be.

Teaching The Alphabet

  • Here are a few tips when you're teaching alphabetical order:
  1. Keep each lesson short. Why not print out a few of our homeschool worksheets and then try again later?
  2. You'll see in our page on how to go about teaching the alphabet that encouraging multi-sensory learning is obviously a good idea. How about hiding a few plastic animals around the house, getting your child to find them and then arrange them in alphabetical order?

You'll find all our homeschooling activities aim to make learning fun!

Writing Worksheets
