Fall Alphabet Mats

Get this free printable and start practicing letter formation, beginning sounds, and writing skills. The mats have three tasks per letter.

The first task is to build the uppercase and lowercase letters with LEGO bricks. Then, choose the pictures that begin with that letter sound. The final job is to trace the letter.

Your students could use dry erase markers, markers, crayons, or pencils to trace the letters and identify the correct pictures. Students could even use these fall-themed letter mats as play dough mats.

Some students struggle with learning all their letters, and it is vital for them to master this skill. That is why I use lots of different learning activities to practice letters; hands-on, paper and pencil, movement, books, and so much more. These letter mats are a great addition to my many letter resources!

So Easy to Prep

The fall alphabet mats are so easy to get ready and use! There are two letters per page, so you could cut them apart or leave them large. Once you print them, you can slide them into a wipe and write pocket or laminate them for durability. Also, once you laminate them or put them in the pocket, they can be used with dry-erase markers.

Using the Fall Alphabet Mats

Students will begin by selecting a letter mat. They will then build the capital and lowercase letters with LEGO bricks. Next, they will then circle or cover the pictures that start with that letter. There are six pictures, with 3 of them beginning with that letter. Finally, the students will trace the letters.

Students could also cover the letters with play dough for an added sensory task. There are many benefits to play dough, and my students always love to use it for learning activities.

Differentiation Ideas

These letter mats can be differentiated for the many levels of students you have in your classroom. Each mat has two letters on it but could easily be cut apart if that is overwhelming or distracting for a student.

If you have a struggling student, you could only give them certain letters that you are focusing on and not overwhelm them with the whole alphabet.

Students ahead of the game could practice sounding out words by recording the pictures they chose for each letter mat. They could also use the letter mats to spell sight words or their name. For example, if they are learning the sight word “the,” they would get the t, h, and e mats out and practice those letters to spell the word “the.”
