Here’s a set of free letter R worksheets for preschool children. These educational activities are a fun way for young children to work on letters of the alphabet.
Recently, I started a new series of alphabet worksheets that started with the letter A. This week I wanted to add great letter R activities to the alphabet series that will eventually include the whole alphabet. Do you have a letter of the week curriculum? If so, these letter R printables will be the perfect addition.
- letter identification
- letter sound recognition
These FREE Printable Letter R Worksheets include:
- Color the Letter Printable Worksheet
- Alphabet Tracing (capital letters and lower case letters)
- Color the Letter Sound
- Large Letters to make a lacing card or to uses with dot markers
Color the Letter Page
This free printable letter R worksheet focuses on identifying a specific upper case letter. With young students, they are still working on visual discrimination. These letter worksheets are a great way to practice letter recognition. The letter R fun coloring pages only includes an uppercase R for that reason. Find the correct letter you are hunting for and color the picture.
Alphabet Tracing Worksheets
There are two letter R tracing worksheets in the printable packs. One practice worksheet that includes only an uppercase letter R and the other includes a lowercase letters row for children that are ready or interested.
Line tracing takes a lot of fine motor skills for young learners. That’s why I only added 6 letters to each page of the capital letter R tracing letters pages. There is also a page that includes a lowercase letter r.
If your child or student wants a little extra 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 printable worksheets you are hunting for simple pictures that start with the corresponding letter R sound. When you find one that starts with the sound of the letter R, color it in. This is practicing letter-sound correspondence
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 letter sounds. This worksheet might also be helpful for kindergarten students who need extra practice.
Large Letters with Dot Markers
You can use these free printable activities 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 letter shape and formation of the letter.
Different Ways to Work with Large Letter R Worksheets:
- Stamp them with a dot marker.
- 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.
