Printable Alphabet Puzzles

Start by scrolling to the bottom of the post, under the terms of use, and click on the text link that says >> _____ <<. The pdf file will open in a new window for you to save the freebie and print the pages in color or black and white. If you print in black and white, you can either print on colored cardstock to add color or have students decorate as they color with crayons, markers, or colored pencils. I suggest laminating for durability. Now, cut the puzzles apart and store the puzzle pieces in a ziplock bag to easily store and bring out this literacy activity for kids.

Print two sets of these puzzles and laminate them for durability. There is one version of these puzzles; upper to lowercase match. Print any set you wish according to the needs of your group of students. Cut out the puzzles and make sure each set is separated for easy play.

ABC Puzzles

Use these puzzles to help kids develop letter identification skills and strengthen their letter knowledge. Kids need to master their letter sounds and identification as it is a critical component to prepare them for reading. Introduce the puzzle cards and show the kids how to find a puzzle card and look for its match. You could possibly have your pre-schoolers work on identical letter to letter matching skills and the kindergarteners to work on upper to lowercase matching skills. A great way to work on these puzzles is to create a competition where the kids have to find and match a certain number of puzzle cards to win the game. This game is simple enough for preschool kids aged 3 and over and well as for kindergarten kids!

This game can also be played as a group, It’ll be even more enjoyable to have the competition game played between groups. If it’s a group of kids working on a set of puzzles, you can either choose a number of letters to work on or the whole set.
