Ahhh, the alphabet: 26 letters that comprise the fundamental building blocks to literacy. We are always teaching and practicing the alphabet. It’s what we spend the most time on in those first few crucial years of education. Heck, we can’t teach our little ones to read if they don’t know their letters and sounds first, right? To help our students review their letters even more, we’ve created these Alphabet Flip Books for Little Learners.
If you’re looking for an engaging and fun way to teach the alphabet to your little learners, look no further than these flip books! They are a great hands-on activity that will help your students learn letter recognition, letter sounds, and beginning reading skills. Plus, they’re just plain fun to make!
Teaching and learning the alphabet can get tiresome and repetitive for everyone involved, so we are always on the hunt for creative ways to teach our students their letters and sounds.
We try to make it fun and interactive so that we aren’t just singing the ABCs all day long. Our students love practicing reading their Alphabet Emergent Readers as we introduce each letter. They take so much pride in being able to read them independently!
During center time, our students play with the Alphabet Clip Cards, not only reviewing their alphabet but also engaging their fine motor skills. This hands-on activity also covers the skill of identifying the beginning sounds of words.
To further engage your students, have them create these Alphabet Crafts for each letter, connecting the letter and sound with an adorable animal project. We LOVE keeping these in a notebook that they can take home upon completion.
And of course, we can’t practice our letters without writing them, which is why our students work so hard on their Alphabet Tracing Worksheets. These have them practicing their letter formation and increasing their letter recognition skills all at the same time.

Alphabet Flip Books for Little Learners
Teaching letter recognition with Alphabet Flip Books will help your students focus on words that begin with each letter, and can be used for introducing or reviewing the letters of the alphabet.
I love activities like this that are the same for each letter, just with different pictures and words, because the routine procedure goes a long way for keeping my students engaged and involved with the activity.
Inside you’ll find:
- Flip book base for all 26 letters
- 26 pages of picture cards, 1 page (6 pictures) for each letter
Since the flip book bases are only a half page, we’ve made it two to a page so you can save paper when copying!
Supply List for Alphabet Flip Books:
Using the Alphabet Flip Books:
Students begin by writing their name on the line of the flip book base page.
Next, students color the six pictures and the letters on the flip book and then cut out all six squares. Once the pictures are cut out, they can stack the pictures on the “Good job” thumbs up picture on the base page.
Once the students have stacked all 6 pictures, a teacher can staple their cards on, making it into a flip book.
The Alphabet Flip Books are great for reviewing the letters of the alphabet and learning to recognize the beginning sounds of words. Students can practice reading their words alone or with a partner once their flip books are completed!

If you have students that are already familiar with their letters and sounds, you can easily differentiate this by challenging them to write each word down and using one (or more) in a sentence. If you have students that need to review, have them trace the letter of each word as they say the sounds.
If you want to make this a bit simpler for some of your students, you can always pre-cut the pictures or skip the coloring part altogether if task completion is a concern. You could also review each word one-on-one with your students, verbally reading the word and having them repeat it.
