How do you teach preschoolers to write the alphabet? Read on to learn what’s working at our house.
Read on to find creative ways for making the letter N!
First they put nuts on the letter N (with the promise to have five when they were done!).
My Three was proud of the work he did with his number stickers.
My Five used spaghetti noodles.
Excitement was high when I let him use Daddy’s nails to make another N.
My husband dug these out of his toolbox so that my Five could make an N with nuts.
Making letters out of small manipulatives is still quite hard for my Three, but he was happy doing this letter N dot sticker page.
Before moving to paper, I like my boys to try writing the letter with their finger. My Three wasn’t interested, but my Five wrote an N in nutmeg.
I’m still trying to figure out if my Three is right or left handed. He switched midway through this activity! You can get my Letters of All Sizes pages by visiting here.
This is the next step in our handwriting pages. After a sloppy start, I admonished my Five to take his time and stay on the lines. This is only because I know he’s capable of it. For kids just starting out with handwriting pages, celebrate the effort! You can get this page at this link.
My Five was proud of the careful work he did on this handwriting page. Get your copy here.
Alphabet Curriculum for Preschool
Our curriculum includes lessons for teaching both upper and lowercase letter names and sounds. You’ll get three lessons per letter, built-in review, simple handwriting practice, rhyming, syllable counting, phonemic awareness, and a whole lot more!
I truly enjoy all your activities. I am Pre Kinder teacher and use many of your ideas. Thanks for always sharing.
You’re very welcome! I hope this works well for you and your learners.

Just wanted to say thanks for offering so many free resources. My 3 year old son and I will be doing letter N for mommy school tomorrow and I just printed off your free necktie template. Your site has become one of my favorites for preschool resources.
You’re very welcome, Jenny! So glad you’re finding things you can use!
