Learning how to write is one of the big benchmarks for preschool. Alphabet letters to trace can make that learning a bit easier. Wondering how? In this article, we will explore why tracing letters is encouraged for early learners as part of their writing curriculum. We will also identify several sites which offer letters for kids to trace. Finally, this article will offer additional alphabet activities which may be used at home or in the classroom to help teach letter identification, and pre writing skills.
With these steps mastered, then reading for fun begins. With the correct book selections and a lot of patience, encouragement and understanding, parents and pre school teachers can speed the learning along with songs, rhyming games and conversations. Many years ago, first grade was the typical grade to begin reading; today, many children enter kindergarten with reading skills already soundly in place.
As is, the sheets on this site are great for beginning letter and shape recognition. One component I believe to be missing from these tracing practice sheets, however, are the lines which mimic writing paper. Having those lines available is an important step toward appropriate letter size and formation when children are actually beginning to write and spell. To combat this, I have simply take a sheet of clear overhead transparency film and drawn the appropriate lines using permanent marker. This clear sheet is then laid over the tracing page.
