Fall Letter Writing Activity

One way to help young learners work on letter formation is with writing activities like this Fall Letter Writing Activity.

Your kids will pick a card, say the name of the capital or lowercase letter, and trace it on one of the recording sheets.

Not only will they be reinforcing their letter recognition skills, but they’ll also be getting some great fine motor practice.

Writing activities for preschool

One of the skills that preschoolers and kindergarteners learn in school is how to write the letters of the alphabet.

This is important as it lays the foundation for future success in reading and writing.

In order to write letters, children need to learn how to form the shapes correctly. This can be tricky, as some letters are mirror images of others (such as ‘b’ and ‘d’).

Practicing letter writing with engaging activities like this one is essential in early literacy development.
