Build familiarity with the ABCs and writing skills with these free letter tracing worksheets PDFs! Choose from letter tracing sheets for each letter of the alphabet (A through Z).
How did you learn to write your ABCs? While a certain song and flashcards may have been used to teach you the ABCs, I’ll bet when it came time to learn to write those ABCs letter tracing sheets were used. There’s a reason tracing is a classic learning tool—it’s effective! Tracing, such as with these preschool letter tracing worksheets PDFs, not only builds familiarity with the ABCs, it also:
- Develops hand-eye coordination (visual-spatial skills).
- Increases fine motor coordination.
- Teaches focus and concentration.
- Reinforces how to hold a writing utensil and how hard to press on the page.
Use the 26 printable letter tracing worksheets below to further build your child’s pre-reading and pre-writing skills. Oh, and even better, these are free letter tracing worksheets! 🙂
Printable Free Letter Tracing Worksheets (PDF Downloads)
There are separate letter tracing pages for each letter of the alphabet. In other words, there is a printable for tracing letter A, tracing letter B, tracing letter C, and so on. Plus, each of the preschool letter tracing worksheets includes the opportunity to trace the upper and lowercase version of the letter. (So the tracing letter B worksheet has both “B” and “b” and the tracing letter C worksheet has both “C” and “c.”)
Your child has 18 chances to trace both the upper and lowercase version of the letter. In addition, to get your kid started, each of the letter tracing sheets has a diagram that shows your child how to write the letter. For example, on the tracing letter B printable there is a “B” with numbered lines to show your kid which line to draw first, second, and third in order to re-create the “B.”
Bonus: Letter tracing pages, like these ABC letter tracing worksheets for preschool and kindergarten are great, but they may not be the most entertaining activity for your kid. Plus, depending on your child’s learning style they may not be the most effective learning tool. Luckily you have many other options!
The letter worksheets bundle contains alternative printable letter tracing worksheets as well as:
