Enjoy this Spring alphabet activity with your blossoming little ones!
Spring is in the air! This is my favorite time of year! The weather is that perfect combination of cool crisp air and yet sweet warm sun. My son Trey and I are quickly filling up our calendar with fun outdoor things to do! How exciting is this beautiful time of flowers blossoming and birds singing sweet songs of hello Spring!
Your little one(s) will enjoy this interactive Spring Birds activity as we all welcome the new season! This resource is a great hands- on learning activity intended to help build letter recognition and letter sound association skills.

Prep for this activity
Simply print this activity on to paper or cardstock. I recommend laminating for durability. Then cut out the components along the dotted lines. One of my favorite things to do is add hook and loop tape! It allows easy attaching to matching cards and multi-use!
Many opportunities for building literacy skills
There are 2 different birdhouses and 4 different birds for each letter of the alphabet. Because there are so many options for each letter, you can easily adapt the activity to suit the need of your children.
For example, little ones can match uppercase letters to uppercase letters, lowercase to lowercase letters, or uppercase to lowercase letters.
Finally, the beginning sound birds can be matched to the corresponding letter birdhouse! If your kids are just beginning to understand the concept of initial sounds of words, use the bird beginning sound example with labels. To make the activity more challenging, use the bird beginning sound example cards without labels.
This set is perfect for use in home, school, and therapy settings. It is a great addition to your spring unit and is appropriate for preschool, pre-k, kindergarten, SPED, RTI, occupational therapy, and speech therapy. It would make for a great addition to your language arts or literacy center. Additionally, it could be used to create a file folder game, a busy bag activity, or a take home activity bag.
Additional activities ideas
- Add magnets to the birdhouses and use on a magnetic board or cookie sheet.
- Use the activity in a pocket chart.
- Ask kids to find birds with the first letter of their name!
