Alphabet Foreground and Background

Alphabet Foreground and Background coloring pages Use this Alphabet Visual Foreground and background activity to reinforce both. A US and UK version of this product is included in the download. The development of Visual Foreground and Background is important in students as it allows them to differentiate between items on a page and later on words in a sentence and on a page. Without the ability to do so, images and words blend into one another and the student is unable to distinguish the difference. Students need to color the letter and its corresponding picture. They then also practise their fine motor further by writing over the dotted letters to form the word of the picture they are colouring.
