Printable Alphabet Advent Calendar

Today I made a printable alphabet advent calendar to share with you!   One of the ways in which my family keeps Christ in Christmas is to have a birthday party for Jesus on Christmas day.  Little children can easily relate to a birthday party.  In my house, my children often count the days before their birthday party.  Likewise, we have an advent calendar to help count the days before Jesus’s birthday.  Instead of counting down the days to Jesus’s birthday using a traditional advent calendar, we cross off letters of the alphabet!   So, I am bringing you a printable alphabet advent calendar.  I hope it helps prepare you and your family for Jesus’s birthday!  Before we begin, though, here are a few books that my family loves …(that help keep Christ in Christmas).

Alphabet Advent Calendar: Cute advent calendar that counts down to Jesus's birthday using letters, not numbers.

Printable Alphabet Advent Calendar

Here are a few pictures from the alphabet advent calendar. This printable alphabet advent calendar is religious… most of my free worksheets do not have a religious theme. Because Christmas is to celebrate the birth of Jesus, these are religious and help prepare a child for the birth of Jesus.

Handwriting Patch Curriculum

Madreen Karle is a master first grade reading teacher with over 30 years of classroom experience. She taught reading in a special needs and English as a Second Language classroom. After retiring she wrote a reading program to help others learn how to teach reading. She is a trusted educator and author of 5 books to help teach children to read and write. In addition to her books, she is a mentor for 3 websites that give reading teacher tips (Mrs. Karle’s Sight and Sound ReadingMrs. Karle’s Reading Patch, and Mrs. Karle’s Handwriting Patch). Through her teaching she learned that confidence was the key to learning to read. A child who is not confident at reading does not like to read and struggles to read. Mrs. Karle created “sunshine moments” to help teach children how to grow their confidence and learn to read.
Meeghan Karle Mousaw (Madreen’s daughter) has her Master’s in Special Education. She has 8 years experience teaching children to read online. In addition, she developed a curriculum to teach children handwriting called The Handwriting Patch. With the Handwriting Patch learning is fun because children learn to draw and learn handwriting at the same time. In 2019 The Handwriting Patch curriculum became an amazon best seller the first year it was released, helping thousands of kids learn handwriting with a unique, fun method. She is mom to 6 kids, each with differently learning abilities and struggles.
The Reading Patch was established by the creators of Mrs. Karle’s Sight and Sound Reading. Together they have been featured on the NBC media outlets and Parents Magazine online. Over the last 8 years in their online platform, Madreen and Meeghan have worked tirelessly with teachers, homeschoolers and parents looking to help children learn to read to become a trusted authority in teaching children to read and advocating early literacy skills. They often partner with other educational experts to deliver the most current information to the Reading Patch community.
