Letter A Tracing Worksheet 1

No matter what age group or skill levels you’re working with, this first tracing sheet is a fun way to introduce letter A.

The large letter A at the top of the sheet almost looks like a connect-the-dots activity!

Little hands will follow the numbers and dashed lines to learn how to make a proper capital and lowercase /a/.

I also included some colorful images to help your child with the letter sound. You will find that all of the images in this packet start with the short /a/ sound. With young learners, I find it best to really focus on that short sound and introduce the other sounds in future reading lessons.

So you will not see any pictures of anchors, avocados, art supplies, or accordions.

Man, /a/ has a lot of sounds! 

Letter A Tracing Worksheet 2

This next worksheet has your student tracing uppercase letters and lowercase letters with handwriting lines as a guide.

Point out the lines and explain what they are for.

Have your child trace the large letters at the top again if they need a refresher on the correct way to write the letter.

If your child is struggling with lowercase /a/, break it down by showing him that the first part is a letter c. Then all they have to do is a quick line to close off the c-c-cave!

Letter A Tracing Worksheet 3

What kid wouldn’t love that cute astronaut?!

While your child is tracing, encourage her to say the short /a/ sound every time she writes a letter.

Letter A Tracing Worksheet 4

Handwriting can be a little mundane, so this sheet might be a little overwhelming to a young learner.

To avoid fatigue (and sloppy writing), have your student only do 1-2 sections in a sitting. 

You might motivate them with a fun alligator YouTube video after they’re done!

Letter A Tracing Worksheet 5

If you think your child is ready, this sheet has space for your student to write a letter next to the traced letter.

This repeated practice will help build muscle memory.

Encourage the student to color the apple when he is done.

Letter A Tracing Worksheet 6

This sheet introduces some letter /a/ words that your child may be able to sound out as they are tracing.

Letter A Tracing Worksheet 7

Build letter recognition skills with this free printable!

After your child is done tracing the capital letters and lower case letters, have her circle all the letter /a/s she can find.

****This could be a good time to point out that different fonts can make the letter /a/ look slightly different.

 
Letter A Tracing Worksheet 8

As your kindergarten students practice, they will be ready to progress to writing letters by themselves!

Have them trace the big and small letters and then write 3-4 of their own.

Quality writing is much more important at this point than quantity.

Letter A Tracing Worksheet 9

This kindergarten kids worksheet provides more of the same opportunity to practice letters – tracing and writing them independently.

Supplies That Might Come In Handy Before Digging Into Your Printable Worksheet Packet

You don’t really need anything other than a printer and a pencil to use these ABC worksheets, but if you’re teaching a student who is writing for the first time, you might want to have a few things available.

A pencil grip is a great way to make writing more comfortable for kids. Using one has been shown to improve pencil control and handwriting.

I didn’t use a pencil grip with my oldest child, but I wish I had. She would complain of hand fatigue, and I would just tell her not to hold the pencil so tightly. Yep, that wasn’t really an effective strategy.

To this day, she prefers to type anything I assign her to do.

I actually just recently discovered dry erase pockets

They are clear page protectors that you can slide your letter tracing worksheets into. Use a dry-erase marker to do the worksheets over and over again!

Kids *love* using the dry erase markers and they are so easy to erase.

Dry erase pockets are perfect for reluctant writers, grumpy perfectionists, and easy review.

If you are a teacher or a daycare provider, you can place them in literacy centers so multiple kids can do the same worksheet.
