Spring sports season is in full swing. My little guy is only 3 years old but we discovered a local tee-ball youth sports group and we signed him up. Tee-ball with 3 and 4 year old is one of the cutest, funniest, most frustrating things. At times, it can be like herding cats! But, they are learning the beginnings of the sport and having a great time as a team, which makes us parents happy!
Since he’s in love with tee-ball and baseball these days, I thought why not include it in an educational activity. I created a few baseball-inspired alphabet activity pages that are perfect for preschool and kindergarten aged kiddos. We’re sharing them for FREE with our readers!
The first few pages start off with letter matching. Click here to download/save and print off each page. Cut out the baseballs with the lowercase letters on them. Little ones will enjoy matching the lowercase baseballs to the corresponding uppercase letters and baseballs.
For a little more advanced fun, I created some pages with simple words. (Click here to download these pages.) Use the same cut-out lowercase letters to “spell” out the words like bat, cat, home etc.
To keep this activity contained, I created a file folder to store them in. Glue the uppercase letters pages inside the folder. Staple a baggie on the back of the folder to store your loose baseball letters. I also glued my words onto construction paper to take in and out of the folder as needed.
