Alphabet worksheets are an indispensable teaching aid for children in their early learning. Children learn to write with the help of these worksheets. They help them develop written communication skills and learn to spell. These can be found on many pre-schools, kindergarten and K-12 educational websites. The main purpose of these worksheets is to assist the children in building a vocabulary and teaching proper pronunciation.
The main principle behind the alphabet worksheets is to teach children the alphabetical arrangement of words and the sounds that go with each letter of the alphabet. The sounds of each letter have a different meaning. The sounds A, B, C, D and E all stand for the same sound when spelled out individually. For example, the sound of the letter ‘A’ is F, the sound of the letter ‘B’ is G, the sound of the letter ‘C’ is H and the sound of the letter ‘D’ is K. When you take all the individual letters and mix them up, you end up with the sound of the word ‘ALM.’ Therefore, by using these worksheets children will be taught to recognize each sound and develop a vocabulary that is necessary for reading and writing.
You can find these worksheets in almost every local educational store as well as online. You may also purchase them directly from the manufacturer. You can also make your own alphabet worksheets – just choose the shape of the letters that you want and draw the corresponding sound. Then have the children make copies of their own worksheets by printing them on graphite or cardstock paper.
