Build letter recognition and highlight the focus letter with a set of printable alphabet hats.
Liven Up Your Letter Focus Activities with Printable Alphabet Hats!
Are you looking for new and fresh ideas for letter-recognition activities for your early years classes? Are you tired of the same, boring worksheets and alphabet activities? We’ve got you covered with a new and fun set of alphabet crowns, sure to excite your students (and make those letter names and sounds stick at the same time!)
This resource features 26 printable crown craft templates, each featuring one letter of the alphabet from A to Z. On each page, there are six images. Students must choose the four images that begin with the same letter as their hat, and colour them in. Once complete, students will cut out the images and paste them onto their Letter of the Day hat, displaying that they know the name and sound for the focus letter.
Once everyone has completed identifying the images with the correct letter sound, they will cut out the letter hat craft in its entirety. Then, simply staple a strip of paper on each side of the hat. Measure the strips to fit the student’s head, trim off the excess, and staple them together to complete a fun alphabet crown to wear for the day or week.
✂️ Give Them the (Safety) Scissors
This template makes for a bonus cutting skills activity, depending on your students’ ages and abilities. Scissor work can:
- strengthen finger and hand muscles
- build dexterity and fine motor skills
- improve hand-eye coordination
- develop focus and attention.
Remember to supervise younger students at all times when they are working with scissors.
