Helping little kids to read can be challenging, and honestly I used to doubt myself whether I’m fit for this job.
As times goes by, I noticed that every kids learn at their own pace, and have their own motivation.
Among other things that help me to teach my kids to read include:
- Let them get familiar with the various look of letters via reading, playing with magnetic letters, etc
- Don’t ever rush
- Introduce them to letter’s sounds and make it fun
For today’s post, I’m going to share with you one of our letter printable, the letter A activities.
I prefer teaching using printable because, well, less mess for me. And my kids love it, so there’s that!
This pack has 5 fun beginning sound activities and the best part is, it is no prep printables!

Next, let your kids color all the pictures that begin with the letter A.
There are apple (of course), an ant, avocado, award and anchor.
Say those names out loud so that your kids can hear how the letter A sounds.

The third activity in this page is find the letter.
There is a little simple poem about apples. Read it together with your kids. And let them find all the letter A in there.
