More ways to practice writing letters...
While worksheets are practical and will easily help children to learn, there are many ways to practice writing letters. Before worksheets children should have had ample opportunity to write letters in a variety of ways.
Try writing letters in the sand with a stick. Place flour or sugar on a cookie sheet and let kids write letters with their fingers. Place water in a small bucket and let them write letters on the sidewalk or driveway with a paintbrush.Use a small chalkboard and chalk. Draw the letter yourself in pen and then let your child trace the letter in marker. Once they understand the process, switch... and then let them write the letter for you to trace. Let them write letters with a variety of items. Try crayons, different colored pens, watercolor markers, colored pencils, etc.
It's fun to let kids practice writing letters in these ways. There should be no rules as to how small or large the letters need to be. Children first need to be able to print the letter and the more fun ways they can practice, the better. Then, later on, use the worksheets to help them understand correct letter formation using lined paper.
