Our free Letter K Tracing Worksheets are perfect for those who are learning to write the alphabet in homeschool, preschool or kindergarten.
Add a little fun to writing practice with beautiful pictures and watch kids being more engaged in the learning.
What else have you done to help your child understand the alphabet in the past? A game of I-Spy? Singing Alphabet songs? Draw on the sand? If you have them, do they want to practice using their fingers in sprinkles or rainbow drops?
Or perhaps they could draw on your back and you draw the same on a piece of paper and vice versa. I used to get the kids to do this as an English teacher in pairs. You can get two pairs to race if you want to add a little excitement.
When teaching it felt so important to mix things up... to keep changing activities to keep them interested and engaged.
When it comes to learning letters, you can also watch short learning videos, and play games. Some of my favourite videos are the ones that combine story telling with letter learning. How about helping them by using a mobile app? How can you harness your creativity and have fun while helping them learn?
If you can, imagine being them for a moment... put yourself in a state of understanding and freedom in advance. What would be a similar situation you might find yourself in? Being asked to write complex Chinese characters? or Arabic? Being asked to do this with your non-dominant hand? From that mindset speak to them about letter learning.
Positive Psychology Question: What are you grateful for? Our culture is shaped to some extent by the science of Positive Psychology (Seligman, 2011), so you can find research-based questions that support wellbeing and flourishing like these on our site. How about asking it after doing this activity? Or in the comments below, let us know what you are grateful for and why... anything goes...
