Alphabet Tracing

Alphabet tracing worksheets give your child ample room to learn to print letters. When children are first learning to write letters, they will typically make very large letters. Very large. Then, over time they will learn to write smaller. The following worksheets will help them learn to write between the lines.

The tracing worksheets below allow children to print both the upper and lowercase letters along with a word or two that begin with the same letter. Let your child color the picture too!

Printing both upper and lowercase gives children an opportunity to see the two letters at the same time. It is not unusual for children to be confused by two different ways of writing the same letter. Seeing both ways on alphabet worksheets will help them to understand.

A fun way to teach that all specific letters do not look the same is...

Give your child a printed large block letter for the letter you are teaching. Use old magazines and let your child cut out all the letters they can find in the magazines that are the same as the block letter. Paste the letters on the block letter.

Typically many letters will be found. It is interesting for the kids to see that different fonts, font sizes and colors all still make up the same letter. Have the children look for just uppercase, lowercase or both!

More fun with letters:

  • Turn off the lights in the room. Use a flashlight to make large letters on the wall. Have your child name the letters as you make them. Give your child a chance to make letters too!
  • Spread out a newspaper or use an old magazine. Name a letter and see how long it takes for your child to find it. Let them circle the letter. For added fun, let them name a letter for you to find.
  • Do you have magnetic letters that stick to the refrigerator? Place two letters in a bag and have your child reach in (without looking) and pull out the letter you have named. See if they can pull out the correct letter by feel alone. Later try placing 4-5 letters at a time in the bag.
  • Let kids print letters on frosty winter windows.
  • Name a letter. Then let your child create it by using whatever supplies you have around the house. Try a combination of toothpicks, blocks, shoelaces, etc.
