Instructors can use the following worksheets to introduce the English alphabet to beginning readers.

An alphabet is well accepted series of symbols and letters that represent spoken languages. In the English language the alphabet consists of twenty-six letters. Each letter has an uppercase and lowercase letter form. Five of the letters are speech sounds that are made by the vocal cords. We call these five letters (a, e, I, o, and u) vowels. Two of these vowels (A and I) signify words in the proper context. The vowel E is the most commonly used letter in the English language. The remaining letters are called consonants. The least commonly used letter in writing in Z. Did you know: Until 1835 the ampersand symbol (&) was considered the twenty-seventh letter. The word alphabet comes from the first two letters of the Greek alphabet (alpha and beta).

These worksheets will help teach young students both the upper case and lower case forms of each of the twenty-six letters in the English alphabet. Each letter pack contains a picture poster for the student to color, a handwriting practice guide, and a letter search grid. Each search grid page also contains an exercise in which the student must identify the letters that come before and after a given letter prompt. The worksheets on this page range from identifying to drawing to penmanship to saying the letters of the alphabet. Fun Fact: Letters are called upper and lower case because early printing press operators kept the letter forms in two separate cases.
