Why Is Letter C Formation So Crucial?
It is important to learn to write all the letters of the alphabet correctly…but the letter C is slightly more important.
You see, so many English letters are based on the letter C.
If your kindergarten students feel confident when asked to write letter /c/, that will dramatically help their future writing skills.
Our favorite handwriting curriculum actually calls it the “magic C.”
For example, when you start to make /d/, it starts with writing a /c/ first.
The same is true for many other letters – /a/, /g/, /o/, and /q/.
So learning the letter /c/ will help your student with 5 other letters!
Check Out Your Letter C Tracing Worksheets!
This first page features a carrot and an oversized uppercase C and lowercase c.
Encourage your younger children to start at the #1 and follow the dotted lines around. Their developing fine motor skills will likely make it difficult for them to follow the lines perfectly – and that’s okay!
Tell them that nobody does it perfectly the first time – that’s why there are so many more letters below to trace!
This tracing printable also doubles as a letter recognition worksheet!
After your student has traced the upper case letter C and the small letters, have them move on to the brightly colored letters at the bottom of the worksheet.
Can they use their letter identicaton skills to spot all the /c/ letters in the “alphabet soup?”
Here is another practice sheet that is perfect for tracing!
Encourage your kindergarten children to take their time and really do their best work. Sloppy tracing could end up looking like an /o/ or a /u/.
If your student needs to work on the letter c sound, encourage your child to say the /c/ sound each time they write it.
This fun tracing worksheet has a c-c-cake to color!
Have your student finish tracing the lowercase letters and uppercase letters with their best effort, and then let them color the cake as creatively as they like.
For a fun way to wrap up the activity, ask them some questions.
What flavor is the cake?
What kind of icing is it?
What kind of ice cream should be served with it?
Whose birthday is it?
If your student has learned other letter sounds, this practice worksheet would have a little extra challenge.
After your student traces the lower case letters and the upper case, see if they can sound out the CVC word /cat/.
There is a picture clue to give them a hint!
If your younger kids were proud of themselves for reading /cat/ on the previous worksheet, they will love this one!
More dotted lines to trace, and then more C words that they can read.
This time there isn’t a picture clue – but there is a dastardly distraction.
Have your child trace their way through the sheet and then see if they can sound out the words.
If they say “car” remind them to focus on the letter sounds and not to be distracted.
Car does start with a /c/, but that doesn’t mean that’s what the words says.
This tracing printable will challenge your child to make smaller /c/ letters.
Make sure they have a sharp pencil to help them do their best.
Is your student ready to write /c/ without the dotted lines? Ask them to trace the guide letters and then write 3-4 more letters on their own!
Here your student can trace c and some fun c words.
What other c words can your child think of?
This last sheet includes some tracing lines and blank lines!
The perfect thing to help your child feel more confident with writing the letters on their own!
