Looking for some letter P tracing worksheets to give your young learner some extra practice?
The letter p is definitely one of the most challenging of the English letters.
Because it looks a whole lot like a /g/, /q/, /b/, and /d/.
Young children have their heads spinning at this age trying to remember which way all these letters are supposed to go.
I know that with my own children, it took a lot more time and effort to nail down this rather difficult letter of the alphabet.
The best thing you can do is provide lots of practice, encouragement, and patience.
And the below letter p worksheets are a great way to get in tons of practice in a fun way!
Check Out Your Letter P Tracing Worksheets!
This first practice sheet has lots of different activities for your kindergarten students!
First, use the numbered dots and dashed lines on the bubble letters to practice the correct letter formation for letter p.
Have the child move on to tracing the uppercase letters and lowercase letters. Make sure they take their time and do their best work.
On the bottom level of the sheet, have the student use their letter recognition skills to spot and color the /p/ letters among all the other letters. If this is very challenging, you may provide the hint that there are only three of them in the mix.
Lastly, have your child draw something that starts with the letter /p/ and color in the slice of pizza.
This printable alphabet sheet gives your child the chance to trace capital letter p and lowercase p together.
At the bottom of the sheet, the child can trace and sound out some simple CVC words.
While the child is tracing, you might want to ask them what skin color polar bears have.
Would you believe it is actually black?!
Even if you’re not doing these worksheets during the fall, this smiling pumpkin is so fun for little kids to see!
Enjoy tracing the bubble letter again and then dive into more tracing of big and small letter p.
At the bottom of the page, there are more opportunities for your child to practice finding letter /p/ among other letters.
This is a very simple sheet that might be perfect for the first introduction of this letter to a young student.
There are no handwriting lines or other distractions. The child just has to focus on tracing. Encourage the student to trace the lines in the correct order.
Always draw the “stick” first, and then add the “bump.” If they get this muscle memory down, it will greatly help them in the future with getting the letter to face the correct way.
You can’t talk about the letter P without talking about penguins!
While your child is tracing the lowercase and the upper case letter /p/, have them practice the letter sounds.
What does the letter p say?
What words can you think of that start with that sound?
This sheet will definitely be a challenge to most kids’ fine motor skills.
Feel free to have your kids work on it in short sessions. There is no need to finish it all at once.
You could also slide this into a ring binder and save it for future review.
Tell your child that you will ask them a riddle-type question after they finish each line of writing.
I’m thinking of a bird that can’t fly, but can swim…penguin!
I’m thinking of a white bear with black skin…polar bear!
I’m thinking of a food that people blow up before they will eat it…popcorn!
This letter p worksheet offers a chance for your child to first trace and then write letters without dashed lines.
If this is the first time they have done this, tell them that you only expect 2 or 3 letters on each line.
Solid expectations will help them do their best work.
This last worksheet is perfect for the student who feels confident with writing the letter /p/.
Have the student trace the top row and then allow them to write 4-5 letters on the following rows.
I hope you and your young learner have enjoyed adding these printable activities to your letter of the week curriculum!
Letter tracing worksheets are wonderful practice for students at home, in the classroom, learning a second language, or even in occupational therapy.
