Why Letter Tracing is Important

When you write a sentence on a piece of paper, do you notice how you start each letter at the top? This is a skill you learn in school and the early years of your educational career. Letter tracing worksheets are essential for students to practice the correct letter formation to write sentences as they mature and grow. However, we believe in making learning fun and incorporating the necessary skills for letter formation. Therefore, we have our hands-on letter tracing worksheets ready to go. There are 12 activities per letter, and kids will practice tracing both capital and lowercase letters.

Encourage Students with these Letter Packs

For example, we place a pom-pom in our kids’ hands to hold with three fingers so their thumb and pointer have the pencil, or dry erase marker correctly. As we graduate from the pom-pom, we use special whale pencil grips and will change as we master the correct pencil grip. Secondly, we do not just hand out these no-prep letter worksheets without showing them how to trace each letter correctly. Our goal is to demonstrate each letter formation and provide students with the correct tools and hands-on experiences to write and build each letter. Lastly, by showing how to write each letter and how to use each printable, students will understand their “job” and work towards completing the task.

Letter Formation and Pencil Grip Tips

Whether you are homeschooling or using these letter tracing worksheets in your classroom, please make sure students practice their handgrip and trace the letters from the top down. Both skills are supercritical as they complete these letter tracing activities. If your child or student is starting, we suggest having them hold a pom-pom with their three fingers and holding the pencil with their thumb and pointer. Using a pom-pom is easier for a child to hold and less painful than a pencil grip. Then, as students continue to work with their handgrip, they can move up into using a pencil grip finger holder or just holding the pencil themselves. We have seen great success using this pom-pom method.
