Color the Letter Page
This free printable letter A worksheet focuses on identifying a specific uppercase letter. With younger children, they are still working on visual discrimination. Letter recognition worksheets are a great way to practice this skill. This coloring page only includes capital letters for that reason. Find the correct letter you are hunting for and color the picture.
Alphabet Tracing Worksheet
There are two tracing pages in this activity pack. One that includes only the uppercase A and the other includes a few lower case letters for children that are ready or interested.
It takes a lot of fine motor skills to trace on the dotted lines. That’s why I only added 6 letters to each page.
If your child or student wants more practice, I recommend tracing the letters with a highlighter first and then trace again with a pencil. That will give you double the amount of practice.
Letter Sounds Worksheets
In these free alphabet worksheets you are hunting for pictures that start with the corresponding letter sound. When you find one, color it in. With this practice sheet, you might need to sit with some children and stretch out the word with them so they can hear the beginning sound.
Large Letters with Dot Markers
You can use these free printable worksheets in a variety of ways to make learning fun. Refer to the list below. These educational activities will help strengthen fine motor skills. It will also help children become familiar with the formation of the letter.
Different Ways to Work with Alphabet Letter A:
- Stamp them with dot markers.
- Put small stickers on the dots.
- Place a mini eraser or button in each circle.
- Punch the circles with a hole puncher and turn it into a lacing card. Lace the ribbon up and down through the holes along the letter.
- Use it as a punching card. Give your child a thumbtack (They can do it!) Start at the top of the letter like you would if you were writing it and poke the thumbtack in the middle of each circle as you form the letter.
