Today I have some Letter A Coloring Pages! When teaching the letter sounds, the short A sound is the first vowel sound you should teach. When you teach it, make sure that your student knows the short a sound. Once they understand the short a makes, they will understand the sounds of the rest of the vowels. The vowels make words make magic. Hat becomes hit, cat becomes cot. Before we get our Beginning Sound Letter A Coloring Pages, first, here are some fun books to teach the beginning letter A sounds!

Letter A Coloring Pages
There are three letter a coloring pages. There is one with just a capital letter a, there is a coloring page with just the lower case letter a and then there is a third one that has the upper case letter a on top of the lower case letter a letters. As we detail in our how to teach the alphabet, we believe that the funny “fonts” of each letter of the alphabet should be explicitly taught to students. These funny fonts (like the lower case letter a), confuses children. We also explain in the how to teach the alphabet page that we believe you should visually show the students the upper case letter above the lower case letter. The upper case letter is only used in specific situations. The majority of letters people read are lower case.
