Cut and Paste Alphabetical Order Activity

I’m always excited to find hands-on activities that are also easy to prep. This alphabetical order activity is just that! It is super versatile making it great for both Pre-K and Kindergarten. With 2 versions to choose from (uppercase and lowercase) you can pick what works best for your kiddos. So grab the scissors and glue sticks and check out a couple of my favorite ways to use this activity in the classroom!

All you need for this simple alphabetical order activity is some scissors, crayons, and a glue stick.

Grab It, Name It, Paste It!

For this variation, I like to use a small basket or grab bag to place the alphabet letters in. Students grab a letter out of the basket and then glue it on the ABC chart in the appropriate order.

Teacher Tip: Place an alphabet chart on the wall as a reference point for younger children. This way they can refer to the chart to help guide them in the activity.

Students can color the letter cookies for an extra level of fun in this alphabetical order activity.

Flip It, Name It, Paste It!

For a more challenging variation of this alphabetical order activity, print both copies of the lowercase and uppercase letters. Students should cut out all the letters and place them face down. They then flip over a letter, name it, and paste it on the correct ABC chart (uppercase or lowercase).

The kids cut apart the letters and glue them in the correct alphabetical order on the Cookie ABC activity sheet.

One of the things I like most about this simple literacy activity is that students get to strengthen their fine motor muscles and cutting skills while also practicing ABC order!
