Alphabet Coloring Worksheet 1

Letter A is for a-a-apple.

Have your student color the apple a classic red, bright green, or even pink. 

Point out the uppercase letter and lowercase letter for this very first vowel. 

At the bottom of this page, your child will see the word “apple” in block letters for more coloring!

What other words start with the /a/ sound?

The vowels can be very tricky for young learners. If you are just introducing the letters, stick to the common sound. All the other sounds, such as airplane and automobile, will come in structured reading lessons down the road.

Why I Picked Each Image For This Free Alphabet Coloring Book

Alphabet Coloring Worksheets on a letter background

You may have noticed that the design details of these kindergarten alphabet worksheets were very carefully chosen. No coloring images that start with long vowel sounds, soft consonants, or consonant blends are to be found!

As I taught my own three children to read, I started to notice that so many early alphabet practice activities used words or letter sounds that could confuse a new reader. 

For example, words like giraffe, knight, cent, ace, and ice show that consonants and vowels can have different sounds.

If your kid is just learning the sounds letters make, it can disrupt the learning process to introduce these complicated concepts too early. 

Those are for a later, more structured reading lesson to be taught in late kindergarten or first grade.

So all of these printable activities have images that reflect the short sounds of vowels and the common sound of consonants (no silent letters, soft g, soft c, etc.).
