Looking for some free letter V worksheets for your kindergarten kids or preschool students?
Well, I’m back with another letter of the week pack!
Last week we dove into the letter U, and this week we are going to be doing all things letter V!
These printable worksheets are full of coloring pages, letter recognition worksheets, a printable book, a play dough mat, and more educational activities!
They will fit into any and all lesson plans as you teach the letters of the alphabet to your younger children.
I include easy step-by-step instructions for teaching each of the pages. You may think that it is a cut-and-dry thing to teach, but there are always twists and turns when teaching little ones.
At the bottom of this post, you will find an instant download page for all the alphabet worksheets.
Check Out Your Amazing Letter V Worksheet Printable Pack!
The first thing you will find is an awesome letter V coloring page!
This fun coloring page is perfect for teaching the sound of the letter v.
See if your student can correctly identify each of the images. No worries, if you have to jump in and help.
Your student should see a volcano, volleyball, vulture, van, violin, vase, and Valentine card.
Do they hear the same sound repeated over and over again?
Can they guess what makes the V sound?
This is the first time I’ve included a playdough mat in my alphabet worksheets, and I’m kind of obsessed with it!
It is such a fun, hands-on approach to introduce the letter V before diving into a tracing worksheet.
Work with your student to roll playdough out into a “rope” and fill in the blank letter V.
Point out to your early learners that the V has a point at the bottom, which is what makes it different from the letter U.
****That will be an important distinction to remember as they work on letter identification skills later in the packet!
Another activity you could do is glue popsicle sticks to the mat and decorate them!
Thirdly, you can use do-a-dot markers to “trace” the V shape.
Alrighty, now it’s time for the dotted lines!
Help your younger kids follow the numbers and trace the uppercase V. As with all the letters of the English alphabet, be sure to gently stress the importance of stroke order.
Also encourage them to really focus on making that point at the bottom.
Being intentional about this will help them so much to avoid making a sloppy upper case letter V that really looks like a U.
This page looks familiar, right?!
Well, the lowercase letter v looks a lot like the uppercase version.
Your child might struggle a little with the fine motor skills to make this small letter. Encourage all progress and just make sure they understand that this v needs a sharp point.
It is a lot like the letter k in that way. Sharp angles make all the difference with handwriting.
As the student moves from tracing letter v to writing letter v, allow for different levels of difficulty. Some kids will transition easily, but others will be overwhelmed by the blank lines.
Encourage the struggling student to only make 3-4 good letters /v/s on each line. At this stage, quality does trump quantity.
These do-a-dot pages a great way to work on letter identification.
On this sheet it seems that all the letters have spilled out of the v-v-vase.
Help your child hunt for the uppercase letter /V/ with her do-a-dot marker.
You can also use crayons, markers, pieces of construction paper or whatever you have on hand to make a polka dot!
It seems a volcano has exploded lava and letters!
Can your child go through all the lowercase letters to find the lowercase v?
This fun coloring page is the perfect way to see if your child is retaining the letter v sound.
Go through each image and make sure they understand what each one is.
They should color van, vase, vulture, volcano, volleyball, vacuum, and vest.
This kindergarten worksheet is a break from tracing and a chance to be creative! There is no answer key and many different “right answers.”
Your kid will likely dive right in with this drawing activity, but if not, challenge them with a few riddles!
My favorite kid of ice cream is white. It’s…v-v-vanilla!
If a snake is poisonous, that means it has…v-v-venom!
When my dog is sick, I take it to the…v-v-vet!
As always, your child shouldn’t stress about their art skills. Tell them that just need to make their best effort. Professional artist-level skills are not required.
Kids always love making these fun alphabet books!
Older children may be able to complete it in one day, but most kids at the kindergarten/preschool level will need to do this a bit at a time over several days to do their best work.
Two staples should hold it together with no problem.
Keep in mind that some of these might be new vocabulary words for young students. So be prepared to explain the less commonly used words.
Yep, there’s another fun coloring picture! Children of all ages will enjoy coloring Victor the Vulture!
For an added touch, make it a glue activity by gluing googly eyes on the bird. This will create a fun, silly effect for your young learners.
If you have some scraps of fabric and a creative streak, you could also glue a little v-v-vest onto him!
Tracing pages are usually not the favorite of most kids, but it is such helpful review and extra practice for little hands.
This sheet is printed large enough that they should not struggle too much with the tracing.
If your child is still a little shaky with the letter sound – which would be understandable now that we’re towards the end of the alphabet – have them name each of the pictures while stressing the first sound.
For example, v-v-violin, v-v-vest, v-v-vase. You could also have your child hold their hands in a “v-shape” while saying each word.
This is the last of my printable alphabet worksheets for letter v.
It gives a nice review of the concepts that we have covered.
Your kindergarten children or 1st grade students can color in the van and then practice tracing the capital letter and lower case letter v.
There is a chance to draw something that starts with /v/. Be ready with another riddle for them!
Lastly, your child can enjoy the letter mazes and more handwriting practice.
And that’s a wrap for the alphabet letter V!

I hope you and your child enjoyed the free printable letter v coloring pages, letter tracing worksheets, and other fun activities.
