A tracing worksheet for every letter of the alphabet!
Each alphabet worksheet has several activities. Your child can trace both the capital and lowercase letter. Then there is a place to trace a pattern of the letters. A picture is included on every worksheet. The picture begins with the specific letter and there is space to write the picture name twice.
Each alphabet tracing page gives children the opportunity for a lot of letter tracing practice. As we all know, the more practice a child has, the better they will be able to do it well.
Encourage your child to take it slowly. Have them take their time forming each letter as they learn the steps necessary to form each individual letter.
Enjoy free tracing sheets.
The worksheets below were created by my five-year-old grandson who designed them initially on paper. Once the basic design was set up on the computer he made all of the worksheets himself. He chose all of the words to use and the pictures. He chose T-Rex for T because it is his favorite dinosaur and he chose Mommy for M, well... because who doesn't love their Mom?
I was quite impressed when he was finished. He had a lot of fun making the worksheets and I hope you enjoy the worksheets as much as he enjoyed making them.
Although there is a picture for each letter in the worksheets above... ask your child what else they can think of that begins with the same letter.
**Having the correct "pincer grip" is important when learning to write letters. Once strong fine motor skills are learned learning to write letters is much easier. Here are some extra ways to encourage your child to form the correct grip.
A fun way to encourage a natural pincer grip is to tape paper to the wall and then encourage children to write. When a child's hand is flexed back they will naturally form the correct grip.
Pinching bubble wrap is another way to strengthen the pincer grip.
Let your child trace the letters in an old magazine or newspaper using a watercolor marker.
Let your child see how many beans or marshmallows (or whatever else you have around the house) they can move from one bowl to another in 30 seconds. The key is that they can only use their thumb and index finger of their dominant hand.
