This post is full of awesome Literacy Activities for Preschoolers! Little kids need play-based learning experiences and that’s exactly what these fun activities are! Preschool teachers and homeschool mamas will love the quick & easy ideas for teaching little kids important literacy skills.
Last week I shared our homeschool literacy center. This week, it’s all things Literacy Activities for Preschoolers.
We are huge readers around here! I’m talking having thousands of books. And the little kids’ collection is especially large. I’m not really sure how that happened.
You know, other than I’ve always been a huge believer in the idea that one can never have too many books or crafts supplies. But we’ll save the craft supplies discussion for another day. Lol…
Either way, we’ve always saved all of the fun literacy resources that we receive with each of our preschool monthly themes. We have storybooks, puzzles, and magnetic storytelling pieces galore! And let’s not forget about the sight word pointers and I Can Read books.
My point is that we love everything that we receive in our preschool curriculum kits from Mother Goose Time.
And of course having all of these wonderful things to create engaging literacy activities for preschoolers really has been a huge blessing to us!

I mentioned that a lot of what we use are things that have been included in our Experience Early Learning (formerly Mother Goose Time) preschool curriculum kits over the last three or so years. The resources that we get are for sure amazing!
Reading and writing are so important for little kids. Language and literacy skills are the basis of everyday life. Preschoolers and kindergartners need to learn Language and literacy skills to be able to read well and communicate effectively.
That’s why today I’m sharing 5+ Awesome Literacy Activities for Preschoolers.
5+ Awesome Literacy Activities for Preschoolers
We love using our alphabet manipulatives to help us with writing letters. This year, we’re enjoying using the Loose Parts Letters and then writing the letters as well, but we’ve also used the letter cookie cutters.
We’ve done this activity both with links as well as the Loose Parts Letters. This is a great one for both fine motor and problem-solving skills. And of course it helps little kids to learn how letters are formed which is such an important pre-writing skill.
These are the jumbo alphabet cards that we laminated and we use as play-doh mats or even to trace the letters with dry erase markers. Sometimes we build letters on them too!
The little guy has lots of blank journals that he can write and draw as he pleases. Sometimes he uses the sight word pointers to write words and other times he does his own thing.
The magnetic storytelling pieces that we get each month are great for storytelling. We use a magnetic cookie sheet as a backdrop and he creates scenes and tells stories. Such a versatile literacy tool!
These are seriously some of our favorite literacy activities for preschoolers! Do you have some favorites of your own? Leave a comment and share.

As a Mother Goose Time blog ambassador, I receive the Mother Goose Time Preschool curriculum in exchange for my honest and authentic stories resulting from our personal experiences. As always, my opinions on awesome stuff for little kids are 100% my own. Keep in mind that all preschoolers do things in their own time and on their own terms. What one is ready for, another might not be. Please use your best mama judgement when planning activities for your little kids. #mgtblogger
