Turkey Trace Alphabet Tracing Printables
One of the best things about these activities is that they are super simple to prepare. Just print out enough copies for however many kids will be completing them, add some fun writing tools, and you are all set!
Regular crayons or colored pencils work great, however we sometimes also like to add in skinny markers. They hold similar to a pencil but have such vivid colors. Plus – kids LOVE to use markers! Seriously, if you want instant engagement, just add markers.
Decide whether your kids will work on uppercase letters, lowercase letters, or perhaps both. I typically offer both as an option for my kids, as the purpose of this activity is for exposure and practicing tracing skills. For kids just starting to write, you may find uppercase letters are easier for them to form due to the strokes involved, so you may want to start there.
If they are working independently, they can work on their penmanship by tracing all of the letters in a variety of rainbow colors.
In a small group, I typically like to make it more game-like by calling out a letter name and having the kids search for it before they trace it. This works on letter identification as well as handwriting.
You could even play a beginning sounds version by calling out the sound and having them find the matching letter.
However you play, these simple yet effective printables are sure to be fun!
