Free Download: Bilingual Alphabet Pages

My head is spinning. Even though I've been trying to keep to our normal routine as homeschoolers as much as possible, I'm busier than I have ever been. I thought things would be slower, really, as we shelter in place on our small farm in Texas. I mean we're missing our weekly taekwondo classes, Civil Air Patrol meetings, and even our homeschool co-op. I now have all three of my kids at home since my high schooler's school is canceled. Well, not really canceled as she's up in her room all day doing online school. But the point is that even with her here, it's almost like she isn't.

But it's been hard to keep my 8th grader focused on his school work. And the 2-year-old is getting into everything and demanding our attention when I'm trying to help his older brother. On top of that, we had a goat go into a very difficult labor and although we managed to get both kids out alive, we lost the mama. Which broke our hearts. And now that means we're bottle-raising two kids. Or at least I am because, you know, when you're the mom somehow you get stuck taking care of things even though you have children who can do them.

And then with all the people who are now forced to school their children at home, I suddenly had lots of work requests come in from different places. So I'm trying to keep up.

One thing I had started working on before Covid-19 burst upon the scene and took over our lives was this set of alphabet pages for my toddler. He's still young, so it is an introduction for him. And hopefully, a way to keep him engaged while I am helping his older brother with school.

I thought that maybe some of you might also be in the same boat with little ones underfoot making school time difficult. So I am delighted to share them with you. I hope they help you as much as I hope they help me! I have set them up to be bilingual. The images I use for the kids to color in all start with the same letter in both English and Spanish, so you can choose whichever language you prefer.

You can use them as coloring pages, play-dough pages, use them with dot markers, or Q-tips dipped in washable paint. You can have your kids fingerpaint, watercolor, or chalk them. There is no limit. Use your imagination.

Just print and go.
