Do you have anyone who is a fan of trains in your house? We love them around here. Since I have been working hard this year on my preschool alphabet series, I thought an alphabet train would be a great addition to our learning. This activity can help kids to learn alphabetical order and letter recognition.
Preschool Alphabet Train
Looking for a theme for the letter T in your preschool class? Train is a fun theme that boys and girls both love! You can do so many cute things with trains.
This alphabet train is perfect when paired with a book about trains. (Everything is better with books.) We have a favorite train book called Freight Train by Donald Crews.
This book is a cute one that my kids have enjoyed reading many times over. It teaches kids about the different names of the cars on the train as well as colors. It’s a perfect book for preschoolers.

Our Alphabet Train is a printable set that has both upper case and lower case letters on each train to help kids learn both ways to write or read the letters.
We hole punched the train cars and connected them with plastic chain links. (Have you used these links? They are one of my favorite things for little kids!)
This is a perfect activity to teach alphabetizing and letter recognition. Your little preschoolers can find and connect the letters together in the right order!
Another fun idea is to use small alphabet objects- small things that start with each letter of the alphabet and place them on the train. What a fun way to fill your train and make it ready to go, but also be learning letter sounds, too!
Or, use the alphabet train as classroom decor! These could be hung up along a wall to show the alphabet to kids in a classroom setting.
