Fall Color By Letter Printables
Fall is just my favorite! I enjoy watching my daughter get excited about carving pumpkins and decorating with fall leaves. I love wearing boots and scarves and when I can do that it means the temperatures have turned cool and I wouldn’t want it any other way.
These color by letter printables remind me of all my fall favorites: pumpkins, apples, and leaves. Plus, cute baskets to hold all the fun fall things!
I like to create activities for my daughter that are based on things that we are surrounded by at that moment. It seems that when learning activities are based on a child’s interest or something relevant to their lives, it helps keep their interest more.
To start you’ll need the free printables (download below), as well as your child’s favorite coloring tools. Do your kids go through phases of their favorite art supplies? Mine does. Today we were into crayons, so that’s what we used.
There are three different pictures in this set but a total of five coloring pages. I used all 26 letters of the alphabet plus doubled a few that can easily get confusing. This just provides a little extra practice for those letters.
You will notice that some letters are repeated, such as b, p, d, and q. That is because these letters are often tricky for students since their strokes and look are so similar, so they are repeated on separate pages to provide more practice.
This color by letter printable set is focused on fall colors (brown, orange, yellow, red, blue, and black). So fun, right? Each color is assigned to a different letter which can be found in the grid.
Under the grid is the coloring page. Each image on the page has an assigned letter. This way kids will know which color to choose for which part of the picture. For kids who aren’t ready to read the color words yet, I suggest using the coloring tools to color the color word with the one that correlates.
This activity helps children at many different levels with letter recognition. This is a simple yet exciting activity that can encourage children to learn each letter and recognize the differences between the two.
Besides letter recognition, this activity is also fantastic for strengthening pencil grip, strengthening hand muscles, practicing coloring in the lines, and getting kids excited for fall!
More Challenging Approach
If your child, or students, need more of a challenge, you could incorporate some or all of the following:
- Have the child sound out the letter before coloring in the area.
- Have the child write the letter on a separate piece of paper or whiteboard.
- Ask the child if he/she knows any words that begin with a certain letter. If so, ask him/her to say them or even write them on a separate piece of paper.
