Alphabet Tracing Worksheets
Teaching the alphabet is a critical part of early education. Children need to be able to name each letter of the alphabet and its sound. They should be able to match uppercase and lowercase letters.
And, of course, they need to know how to write each of the letters properly.
When a child first begins writing, I prefer to give them unlined paper to write on. Kids can have a hard time staying between the lines of regular writing paper.
I also like to have a set of alphabet posters or flashcards on hand for them to look at as they begin writing.
However, sometime around late preschool or kindergarten, children begin to transition to lined paper to gain spacial awareness in their writing.
To Prepare the Worksheets
All you need to do to use these alphabet tracing worksheets is print them. They’re ready to go after that!
To Use the Worksheets
Present your child with the worksheet of choice along with a writing utensil. They’re ready to go!
Your preschooler will trace the large letters in the top left corner to get a feel for the proper way to form each letter.
Then, they’ll just trace the letters on the lines. It’s just that easy!
If you’d like to make these worksheets reusable you can laminate them. You could also slip them in a dry erase pocket. Then, have children complete each page with a dry erase marker.
For a little added fine motor fun, let kids form the large letters with playdoh or wikki stix before completing the handwriting portion.
Kids who enjoy coloring can color the image in the top right corner. This is also a great time to discuss beginning sounds.
