Check Out Your Free Printable Letter W Worksheets!
This first page is a letter w coloring page – definitely the fun way to introduce what the letter W sounds like!
Work with your child to identify each of the pictures: wagon, worm, wand, web, waterfall, waffle, watch, and whale.
Can they hear the beginning sounds of each word?
What other pictures could have been on this printable worksheet that make the same sound?
This printable is sure to be one of your kid’s favorite worksheets!
There are two different ways that you can use it to teach uppercase W.
First, you can use it as a play dough mat.
A great way to get started with the play dough is to have your child make their playdough into a long w-w-worm.
Then have the “worm” follow the white line into the “dirt.”
Second, you could use do-a-dot markers to have your child “trace” the letter.
This tracing page is a very gentle introduction to writing upper case letter W and lowercase w.
Your child’s hand will not be overwhelmed and exhausted with only writing them four times each.
If you think your child will need extra practice, be sure to slide a blank copy into a sheet protector. Use dry-erase markers for quick, fun review!
This kindergarten worksheet will have your child writing lower case letters and capital letters without the help of dotted lines.
If your child starts to look confused, have them trace the guides at the top of the page.
As a side note, isn’t it interesting that this letter is called “double-U” when it really looks like a “double-V”?
Remind your child about writing letter V last week. Tell them that this is really just writing two of those.
If you have some magnetic letters on hand, grab two /v/s and put them together. What does it make? A letter W!
They have already mastered the V, so they can definitely write a W.
Time for letter identification!
Uppercase letters have spilled out of the jar. Can your child find all the capital W letters that go in this jar?
Feel free to use washable paint, do-a-dot markers, markers, crayons, colored pencils, stickers, or whatever your child will enjoy the most.
This w-w-waterfall seems to be full of all kinds of lowercase letters – including lowercase w letters!
Can your child sort through all the small letters to find the letter w?
This coloring page will help you see if your child has nailed down the W letter sound.
Help your child to identify each image and really stress the beginning letter sounds of each word.
For example, w-w-wolf, c-c-car, and w-w-watch. This builds phonemic awareness!
Your young children should color the wig, wolf, watch, wing, wing, wheel, whale, wave, and watermelon.
It might be a nice touch to have a little watermelon on hand after this page is complete!
There are a lot of w-w-wonderful words that start with W, but if your child needs some extra help, ask them some riddle-style questions.
It’s so hot outside. I need a cold glass of…w-w-water!
The opposite of man is…w-w-woman!
It’s a fun way to help them think through the worksheet without just giving them the answer.
This letter W book combines so many different things: the letter w sound, w letter words, tracing, and coloring!
The best way to complete this project is over several days.
Consider giving them just one or two pages at a time to avoid their little hands getting too tired.
Construction paper activities are often a fun, low prep way to provide hands-on learning fun!
Complete this letter W craft with your child by tearing pieces of construction paper into small pieces. Then glue each piece to the block letter.
The end result will be a beautiful mosaic!
Alternative option: Tear up small pieces of blue tissue paper. Wrap each piece around the eraser end of a pencil.
Dip the end of the pencil in Elmer’s glue and then stick it to the letter. Have your child cover the W in blue tissue paper this way and tell them that they are making w-w-waves in the w-w-water!
This next page is a chance for your kindergarten children to practice writing lowercase letters.
Each W word also has a matching picture for your younger children to color!
This last letter w worksheet is a review of all the educational activities your child has been doing this week.
They can practice tracing, handwriting, coloring, drawing letter W pictures, and even a letter maze!
The perfect way to round out the week.
