Free printable caterpillar find and color the letter alphabet activity for kids to practice letter recognition, uppercase to lowercase letter matching and letter sounds.

Caterpillar Find and Color the Letter Activity

The amazing thing about these find and color pages is that they can be differentiated for students at a variety of levels.

These caterpillar find and color activities are offered in color or black and white sheets. Then, there are printable butterfly cards with corresponding uppercase letters. I have also included two sets of beginning sounds picture cards to match each letter.

This allows for simple differentiation. Students working on letter identification can use the letter cards and students who are ready to work on letter sounds and beginning sound isolation, can use the picture cards. In addition, you can mix them up and use both. There are lots of ways to use this resource!

This activity is perfect for teaching upper and lowercase letter recognition with preschool and kindergarten students during small groups or independent center times.

If you have students who don’t like to color, try this!

Place the caterpillar pages into write and wipe pockets or laminate them. Then, give the students a dry-erase marker to cross off the letters they find instead of coloring them.

I also included two full-color caterpillar mats for students to use manipulatives on. Give them snap cubes or counters to cover the letters on the sheet as they find them.

How to Use this Spring Alphabet Activity

Place the pile of butterfly letter cards in front of your students. They will pull one card at a time and determine what they see. Then, they will locate the matching lowercase letter on their mat and color it in (or cover it up). They continue drawing cards until all of their letters are colored or covered!

This is also a fun activity for kids reading The Very Hungry Caterpillar or learning about the life cycle of caterpillars! Teach them fun facts about insects and use this activity simultaneously to work on phonics!
