In this pack, you will find two mats for each letter of the alphabet. With each mat, children will learn to recognize both the uppercase or the lowercase of each letter of the alphabet.
Have fun with these printables! Take the time to go through each letter with your child to make certain that they can truly identify the various ways that the letters can be presented.
Once printed out, these pages could be laminated and children use a dry-erase marker to complete them. Once they have finished, the pages can be stapled together to make a book or they can be laminated and held together with a binder ring.
How to use these alphabet learning mats
To use these mats, children will trace over the large dotted letter in the middle of the bottom of the page. This tells them what letter they will be searching for in the ocean.
Then, children can either color in or trace the matching letters as they find them in the ocean.
Children can start with all the uppercase letter mats before moving onto the lowercase letter mats or they could complete the uppercase then a lowercase mat of each letter in alphabetical order.
This printable pack comes in color and in black and white.
