Inside: free printable Polar Express alphabet worksheets and tips on how to use them with preschoolers or young kindergartners.
Polar Express Alphabet Worksheets
It’s that magical time of year! If you’re planning to read or watch Polar Express, then your kids will love practicing the letters B, C, E, H, and T with these free holiday stamp marker worksheets.
If you want to practice more letters and letter sounds, you might like my Hot Cocoa ABC Activity which also goes well with Polar Express.
For your littles who love stamp marker sheets, there is a Gingerbread Man-themed set inside of our Holiday Helpers bundle too.
I also have a larger set of stamp marker alphabet worksheets in my TPT store, and teachers always tell me how engaged their students are with these. It’s a great way to encourage some skill practice. These worksheets cover several areas at once:
- Letter recognition – mixed case
- Connecting letters to their initial sounds
- Fine motor practice
What’s Included in the Free Printable
Your free download will include 5 different worksheets that are related to Polar Express in some way:
- B is for Bell
- C is for Conductor
- E is for Elf
- H is for Hot Cocoa
- T is for Train
Preparation & Materials
To prepare, you just need to print out the worksheets and grab something to dot them with. You might like to get crayons out too.
I have sized these to work with Crayola stamper / Emoji markers, but you can also just use a Q-Tip® cotton swab and paint to dot with.
How to Use
You can use these Polar Express alphabet worksheets any way you like, but I recommend this order:
- Talk about the letter name and how the picture relates to its initial sound.
- Dot the uppercase letter.
- Find the uppercase letter in the bottom section.
- Dot the lowercase letter.
- Find the lowercase letter circles in the bottom section.
- Dot the picture, and color it if desired.
If your littles prefer a different order then that’s fine too!
