Color by ABC’s was created and designed to help students recognize uppercase and lowercase alphabet letters in a developmentally appropriate way.  Letter identification from my experience is an early indicator of reading success in the future.   Color by ABC printables focus on 5 letters at a time to help students recognize the differences between letters.  The letters are arranged to help students visualize the letters in alphabetical order.

uppercase and lowercase letter recognition
letter order recognition- which letter comes before and after in the alphabet
their ability to distinguish between uppercase letters and lowercase letters
Color by Shapes was created and designed to help students observe,  visually discriminated, compare and categorize shapes.  When a child is able to recognize and name shapes it strengthens their ability compare and contrast similarities and differences in the world around them.  Shape name identification will give children a descriptive set of vocabulary words to help communicate what they observe with adults and children.  Shapes are the first symbol students will identify.  This will help children identify more complicated symbols like letters and numbers in the future.
Color by Shapes can help students:
identify shapes
analyze, compare and contrast similarities and differences in shapes
visually discriminated between shapes
identify shapes no matter their size or orientation
