Alphabet Detective Fingerprint Art Template

Teach Starter Publishing
PDF | 2 pages | Years: P - F

A cute way to keep track of the single sounds that have been introduced.

Use this fun alphabet activity when introducing single sounds to your students.

Each time a letter and/or sound is introduced, students use a single fingerprint using an ink pad or paint. Students then add features to their finger print to create a picture of something that starts with that sound.

For example:

  • A – apple (students use a red fingerprint and then add the stalk and green leaf)
  • B – bee (students use a yellow fingerprint and then add the black lines, wings, and antennae)

    Could you attach a sample of the finished images to the blank pages as well for future reference?

    Why are there tabs on the end of each alphabet strip?

      Hi Maria, Thank you for your comment Maria, This is so that you can stick the strips together to make it one long alphabet strip. I hope this helps. Kind regards, Holly

    Is there a page in your site where I can look at the fonts before I decide which one to use as a default font?

      Hi Leanne, We have bought individual licences for each of the school fonts available on the website here: http://www.australianschoolfonts.com.au/ You can view each of the individual font's (lowercase, uppercase, numerals) on this site. Please let me know how you go and if I can help you further. Kind regards, Holly
