Letter A Worksheets, Flash Cards, Coloring Pages

My blog is getting bigger as I add more worksheets, flash cards, coloring pages and other ESL materials. I'm sure my fellow English teachers have a hard time finding and discovering new stuff on this blog. So I decided to make it easier for them to discover useful things on my blog by creating separate posts dedicated to English letters. In this first post I'll start sharing my printable worksheets, flashcards and whatnot designed to introduce letter A to kids.

Alphabet Coloring Pages (Letters U - Z)

Studying a foreign language often starts with the ABC. Introduction of the alphabet to kids opens the doors to the new language for them. So ESL teachers should make sure children have an enjoyable experience with English from their first steps when they start getting acquainted with letters. That is why fun activities are important for easing kids into the second language. Games, songs, colorful flashcards, coloring pages and interesting worksheets can help little students love learning languages, and thus prepare their brains for less entertaining stuff they'll face while studying English as they grow.

It is extremely important that children's first encounter with a new language happens without too much stress and involving their favorite activities. We all know that preschoolers and early school kids love drawing, singing and playing since the time they were toddlers. No wonder all new concepts were introduced to them through this sort of activities. Therefore, introducing the English alphabet to them through coloring sheets is a smart idea.

This is the third and the last blog post featuring my printable alphabet coloring pages. This one contains the last 6 letters of the English ABC - Uu, Vv, Ww, Xx, Yy, Zz. I hope these coloring sheets will help English teachers make their lessons more enjoyable for little ones who are making their first steps in learning English language.
