Learning to read is sort of like putting together a puzzle. There are a lot of pieces to put together before your child recognizes D-O-G as a word that starts with D and spells “dog”: things like learning the ABCs, recognizing each letter, and then putting all the letter sounds together. That’s why it’s important to practice the basics of letter recognition and letter sounds with your child at home. You help set them up for reading success—and also have fun doing it!
To help you with that, Freebie Finding Mom has words that start with D and letter D worksheets! These worksheets have good, simple words that start with D that are perfect for preschoolers, kindergarteners, and other early readers. It’s a great, age-appropriate way for you to give your child a learning boost at home!

Printable Tracing Letter D Worksheet
The letter D—especially the lowercase letter D—can be a tiny bit difficult for early writers. (Many kids get confused and write it backwards, so it becomes the letter B!) The good news is that tracing is a tried-and-true way to help your child remember how the letter D is supposed to look and practice the movements needed to write it. Once they get the individual letter down, your child will be on their way to writing whole words that start with D!
You can get the Tracing Letter D Worksheet in the Printable Letters Worksheets Bundle!

These Letter Flashcards are perfect for letter D recognition and letter D sounds (along with the other letters of the alphabet, of course!). You can use them like flashcards or make them into a game. Either way, your child will have fun learning their letters–and that’s the goal!
Here’s a fun game you might want to try: to make the game for challenging for advanced early readers, you can ask them to give you a word that starts with every letter flashcard you hold up! As an example, if you show them the letter D, they can give you the a word that starts with D like “dog,” “day” or “dance” (or even a Spanish word that starts with D, like “día”).
