Alphabet Coloring Sheets (part 4)

These alphabet coloring sheets teach the letters S through Z.   Here are few sample questions you can use for this activity:
  • Have your child identify the upper and lowercase letter in the box.
  • Ask your child what sound (or sounds) that letter makes. (ex: long and short U sounds and the sounds of X)
  • Read the sentences in the box and ask your child to find all the words that contain that letter.
  • As your child colors the pictures, ask questions. (ex: What color socks do you have? What other kinds of flowers can go in a vase? Can you play the xylophone? Name some animals that you find in a zoo.)
To Print: Double click on the sheet to open it. Then right click and choose Print Picture.
