Preschool Learning Activities

Fun Stuff for Early Readers

Should you have an early reader, these preschool learning activities will help to expand on what they already know.

Realize that all children develop at different rates. As a mother of five children, I can tell you that four of those children started kindergarten knowing all the letters and sounds without being able to read a single word, and one of those children (the middle child) started kindergarten reading at a third grade level.

Some children pick up reading at an accelerated level and others simply do not share an early interest. Either way is OK. Children should be allowed to learn at their own pace.

Should you however, have a child like mine, who wants (begs!) to learn, here's some printables to help you expand their reading capabilities.

NOTE: All of the printables are intended for personal non-commercial use only. Any questions, please see Terms of Use. Daycare providers, teachers and parents are welcome to print in quantity as needed. Simply click on the activity sheet of your choice to open the file in PDF format. You’ll need to have Adobe installed on your computer to see and print the files. If you don’t have it, you can get it free at
