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)

    Why are there tabs on the end of each alphabet strip?
    • Holly (Teach Starter)

      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.
