Free Printable ABC Chart -- Grows With Your Child!


#ABCchart #EarlyChildhoodEducation #Vowels&Consonants #First5 #ABC #Homework #Preschool #StudySunday #FreePrintable #Homeschool #Learning

   When a child is first learning the alphabet, getting familiar with the letters is the name of the game. Once a child is familiar, however, there's still a long way to go. This free, printable ABC chart will not only help your child get familiar with letters, but will also help you introduce sounds, and vowels and consonants.
To print this chart, click on the image to open the full-size, print-friendly version in a new tab.
   This chart is designed to grow with your child, and stay relevant up until they reach reading age. Using familiar designs, themes, and objects, it introduces the alphabet in a way that's fun and efficient. As they grow, children will learn to notice new things about their ABC chart, just like how they're learning to notice new things about letters.

Step 1: Familiarization
  • Lines match the verses of the "ABC song" in order to be point-and-sing friendly
  • Both uppercase and lowercase letters are included
  • Bright, bold colors and simple illustrations are fun and engaging
  • Labeled pictures show that letters make words, and words mean things.
Step 2: Recognition
  • Beginning sounds are highlighted for each letter's primary illustration
  • Letters are highlighted in the middle of secondary illustrations
  • Secondary illustrations are focused out to draw attention to beginning sounds first
  • Vowels are prominently highlighted in bright red
  • Consonants with common secondary sounds are alternately colored, as well.

Step 3: Refinement
  • Introduces common alternate sounds such as long vowels, soft G, and silent H.
  • Introduces mid-word letter recognition
  • Provides opportunities to point out letters in other words (eg. the U in "Bug")
