Early Childhood Education with Preschool Fun
Do you have a preschool aged child at home? Would you like to enrich their early childhood education with a homeschool preschool program that will help them learn the alphabet?
My name is Monica, and I am a Certified Early Childhood Education Teacher. I homeschooled preschool with my two boys and now I teach other moms how to do the same through my online preschool program: Visual Montessori. We’ll go over the alphabet and so much more with our preschool at home learning curriculum online.

Learn to Read Preschool Alphabet Letter Z
This series is ideal for parents who have a preschooler who knows their ABCs and who has expressed an interest in reading. We’re on a journey to learn to read short words from either the list of Dolch sight words, or short words that are easily represented with pictures. If you would like to assess your preschooler’s readiness in the area of reading, I have a free chart in my post, Advancing Preschool Reading Behaviors. If you like this post, please PIN it on PINTEREST. 🙂
To get ready for each week I do some online research, and review tips from the books I’ve read. I also spend some time on Pinterest looking for things that might be good for our letter activities for the week. I pin everything that looks interesting. My goal is to create a PINTEREST board for each letter of the alphabet. Follow me on Pinterest if you want to get copied on all the resources and ideas that I discover via Pinterest.
Learn to Read Preschool Alphabet Letter Z
I’ve designed the Learn to Read Preschool Alphabet Letter Z printable pack to be super easy for a busy mom. All you need are some scissors, glue, markers or crayons, and a little imagination. I laminate our projects, but it’s not necessary to do so. The Letter “Z” printable pack includes: three puzzles, counting, matching and shapes games, do-a-dot, flashcards, crafts and loads more.
Making the letter “Zz” with zippers.
The coloring pages can be colored with paint, sponges, q-tips, markers, foam stamps, cotton balls, fruit or vegetable stamps, markers, crayons, or colored pencils. Glue on pom-poms, googley eyes, pipe cleaners, popsicle sticks, and make just about any printable three-dimensional.
Learn to Read Preschool Alphabet Letter Z Printable Pack
In the Learn to Read Preschool Alphabet Letter Z printable pack, the coloring pages are following by activities like a puzzle, draw a path, and craft. Crafts can be as simple or complex as you like. You can simply color the craft or you can print it on various pieces of colored construction paper and have your child assemble like a puzzle. I also like to include a lace-up craft in these printable packs. For our letter “Z” study I’ve included a number zero lace up card.
The printables pack will also include flashcards with commonly used and easy to illustrate words that start with the letter, as well as cutting practice, counting, aligning and organizing activities. The package is completed with do-a-dot fun and sight words to aide in further study.

Helpful Preschool Teaching Tools
A preschool Morning Board is a great way to start a preschool day. I like to use is as a visual guide for the day and it helps me walk my preschoolers through some basics – reading a calendar, telling time, and more. For a complete list of our morning board printables click here: Morning Board.
To supplement our letter Z activities for the week, I also use God’s Little Explorers. Our letter Z coincides with week 4 in GLE. In God’s Little Explorer’s the bible story for the week of letter Z study is the story of Noah’s ark with an emphasis on the word “Zoo.” BTW – in case you haven’t downloaded them yet, I have free Safari and Zoo animal printables packs for some extra animal-adventuring fun! My favorite activity from GLE (used to emphasize the story) is one where you load animal cookies on a banana boat (with peanut butter on it). Stacie has some wonderful ideas.

Tools to help Fine Motor Skills and Brain Development
Since Zippers have been a main focus of our letter “Z” week, I’ve been having my two and four-year-olds practice with some zipper play on a Melissa and Doug Basic Skills Board. It’s a puzzle and a fun way to practice the skills needed to get dressed. It’s a fun and easy way to incorporate getting-dressed skills into preschool play!
