Alphabet Do-A-Dot printables are not only a lot of fun for kids of all ages, but they are also an excellent way to help your preschooler or kindergartner work on their hand-eye coordination, their fine motor skills, colors, and so much more!
Add a little bit of letter recognition practice into the mix and you’ve got a fantastic activity that your little learners are going to love!
Is your child struggling with the letters of the alphabet?
Are they frustrated or bored by worksheets?
These printable alphabet Do-A-Dot pages make it easy to get even your most reluctant learners excited about the letters of the alphabet.
Uppercase Alphabet Do-A-Dot Printables
From A to Z, this printable set includes a separate page for every uppercase letter of the alphabet.
We start out using them one at a time, to correspond with the letter that we’re currently learning.
Then, once we’ve made our way through all 26 letters of the alphabet, we pull them all out again and use them for review.
You could, of course, use them as we did as a supplement to the letter activities that you’re already doing, or you could use them on their own to either introduce or review the letters of the alphabet.
You could even add them to your preschool alphabet book if you’re making one with your child.
Now, we love using ours with our Do-A-Dot markers (personally, we LOVE this set from Amazon. They’re the perfect size for little hands!), but we also always have a set of crayons handy so that we can color the picture that is included on each page!
If you’re not feeling the Do-A-Dot markers though, there are still so many different ways that you can use these alphabet Do-A-Dot printables.
In the past, we’ve swapped out our dot markers for everything from circle-shaped stickers and crayons to color the circles in, to circular magnets paired with a metal cookie sheet.
We’ve even given colored glass gems and dry erase markers a try! Just slip them into some dry erase pockets and you’re ready to reuse them as often as you’d like.
They’re all great alternatives if you’d like to maintain the fine motor element of this activity while foregoing the mess and drying time that can sometimes accompany the use of dot markers.
If you plan to use them for a while, just run them through your laminator, hole punch them, and store them in a 3-ring binder for easy access.
