Preparing the Activities
To get the free alphabet worksheets, enter your name and email address in the form at the bottom of this post.
Once you’ve downloaded the worksheets, print out the pages that you need for your preschoolers. You can make as many as you need for them.
These print-and-go worksheets are also great for homeschoolers, occupational therapists, and children’s librarians.
If you’d like to make any of the pages reusable (not recommended for the color by letter pages), laminate them or slip them in a dry erase pocket. Have children complete the activity with a dry erase marker.
Completing the Activities
Color by Letters
This free printable pack includes two color-by-letter activity pages. On each one, children will follow the color code to reveal the hidden images – an uppercase O and a lowercase o.
Not only do these pages encourage children to follow directions, but they’re great for helping kids with letter recognition.
If your preschooler can’t read color words yet, feel free to shade in the crayon with the correct color and then have your kids match the color instead of the color word.
Color and Trace Pages
Coloring and tracing are both great fine motor skills. Coloring objects that begin with the letter Oo help kids learn the sound that “o” makes and introduces them to things that start with that sound.
Tracing the letters at the bottom of the page encourage children to practice proper pencil grip and letter formation.
You can also take a moment to point out to older children how the sentences at the bottom of the pages begin with capital letters and end with a period. This plants a seed for later when they begin learning about sentence structure.
Dot to Dot
Preschoolers will love connecting the dots from 1 to 44 to reveal the most adorable otter. When they’re done, they can color him and then trace the letters at the bottom of the page.
Tracing lines, as mentioned above, is a great motor skill builder. The owl tracing page is a great way to work on concentration, as well, as children work diligently to trace a variety of lines that go in all directions.
Do a Dot
Dot markers are a lot of fun for little ones. They’re a nice change of pace from pencils and crayons.
I love that they strengthen motor skills and hand-eye coordination as kids line up the marker to dot each circle.
On these two pages, preschoolers will use dot markers to build the letters O and o as well as fill in the Oo circles on an octagon.
This would be a great time to teach your little ones how many sides an octagon has as well as point out the correlation between octagon (8 sides) and octopus (8 arms).
Learning to use scissor correctly is an important preschool skill. So, we’ve included a scissor practice page in this pack.
Children will color an orange, trace the letters O and o, and then cut out the orange.
I love offering a variety of fine motor skills in my free printables. Painting with q-tips is a lot of fun for little ones.
They will work on their pincer grasp while picking up and using the q-tip. And, they’ll fine tune their hand-eye coordination as they align the q-tip with each dot outlining the ostrich.
One last activity included in this printable is a letter maze. Children will color in all of the squares that contain a letter O or o.
Letter Oo Books for Kids
Adding letter Oo books to this lesson is a great way to help your child learn about the letter O.
These fun and engaging stories will help teach your child all about the letter O, its sound, and more.
Plus, they’re a great way for your child to practice reading skills!
