How to Use the Tracing Cards
Using these alphabet tracing cards is easy and fun! Students simply pull a card from the basket and trace the uppercase and lowercase letters on the card. When they are done they choose another card.
With any activities that involve the alphabet, some students may feel overwhelmed by the fact that there are 26 mitten letter cards.
When this happens, I give a specific number to complete or assign certain letters based on each child’s needs.
This helps give the kids a realistic chance at reaching their goal and builds confidence!
If you are only working on uppercase OR lowercase letters, put an ‘X’ through the letter that is not the focus. This will help make sure that kids are tracing the correct letter.
This alphabet tracing activity is sure to be a hit in your classroom all winter long!
