Why a Spanish alphabet printable?
This Spanish alphabet printable will make a great addition to your classroom.
It will create a print-rich environment and serve as a great reference point for visual learners to use when learning their letters.
I originally created this Spanish alphabet printable for my son to use at home because he struggles with letters. He doesn’t like to sit still for long periods of time to learn letters and gets frustrated with worksheets.
That’s why I try to create engaging activities and games, like an ABC bingo to help him practice letters and make them stick.
This visual Spanish alphabet printable has encouraged his letter memorization as he connects the letter to the animal words that begin with each letter.

First, let’s learn a little bit more about the Spanish alphabet and this printable below.
The Spanish Alphabet
The Spanish alphabet consists of 27 letters, that’s one more letter than the letters of the English alphabet, thanks to the ñ.
Now you might be wondering, “what about ch, and ll, I definitely learned those in Spanish 101?”
Well, yes, you might have, but the Real Academia Española declared that ch and ll are no longer part of the Spanish alphabet because in all reality, they are actually digraphs, two letters that combine together to correspond to one sound.
Therefore, the current Spanish alphabet consists of 27 letters.
Spanish alphabet pronunciation
Below are the pronunciation of the different sounds in Spanish alphabet.
