Our preschool letter worksheets are perfect for Matthew (4) as I teach him his alphabet. They allow us the opportunity to tackle a new letter each week.
These free printables go well with our letter of the week preschool crafts.
Let me show you how we use these in our homeschool day with Matthew.
You Will Need:
- letter Dd printable <<—— click to print
- do a dot art markers
- crayons for coloring the dog (optional)
We get our do a dot marker (I let him pick which color he wants to use) and the printable.
We identify what a big D and a little d look like on the worksheet.
I use my alphabet flip book to find our letter as well. (I have a super easy and affordable tutorial for making your own flip book.)
We find the Dd card.
We say the letter, make the sound and same the name of the picture on the card.(Pretend that is the Dd card. I totally forgot to take a picture.)
Matthew starts use the do a dot marker to find the big D’s and little d’s.
This printable has a a lot of letters that look like D and d. There are P and p, B and b, Q and q.
He really confused the little d’s with the other lowercase letters. I reminded him that a little d has a circle then a line. That really helped him. We could go one by one and check them so he was sure not to confuse them.
Once he was done marking all of the D’s and d’s, he wanted to count them.
Then, he always likes to color the picture on the worksheet.
This time he not only colored the picture but pretended the letters like it was a word find like he has seen his bigger brothers do.
I just let him lead.
