Printable Alphabet Coloring Pages (Letters A - J)

Coloring pages are one of the most popular children's pastimes. No doubt, love for coloring can serve as a cognition catalyst. Besides being entertaining, coloring pages are a great tool to be used to help kids ease into the learning process and ensure a smooth transition from a nonchalant childhood playtime to studying new things and preparing for early school. Since we are talking about preschool and elementary school students, there should be a high demand for printable alphabet coloring pages among ESL teachers. Because, obviously, the ABC is the first step to start studying a language. And there is a global trend to begin learning English as early as possible.

As I have already written in my earlier posts, the key to success in teaching English to little kids is fun and engaging lessons. That's why games and popular activities like coloring are always welcome in the classroom. Not only they help young students efficiently memorize letters and vocabulary early in the course of learning languages but also they are a part of a very important process of nurturing love for learning. From the practical point of view, alphabet coloring pages are extremely useful for kids whose mother tongue does not use the Latin alphabet. Children in Asian countries, those in Russia and Arabic countries must experience extra difficulties while learning the English ABC.







Fortunately fine-motor activities involved in coloring stimulate brain and thus improve memory of kids. Coloring alphabet will definitely help them better recognize English letters and words starting with them. That is why coloring is one of indispensable activities in my English teaching practice. I teach English to children whose native language is Cyrillic and therefore many English letters look unfamiliar to them. I believe the problem id even more acute for teachers working in Korea, China, Japan and many Arabic countries. Memorizing the English letters must be a challenge for young learners out there. Therefore printable alphabet coloring pages are the must to make learning the ABC a fun and easy activity for both students and educators.

I searched for alphabet coloring pages in Google but I did not like many of available images. Many of them are not simple enough for little kids. Therefore I decided to create my own printable coloring sheets. I also added traceable words to boost children's motor skills as well as vocabulary memorization and word/letters recognition abilities. So here are coloring pages for the first ten letters of the English alphabet:
