When it comes to practicing letter writing and letter recognition, my kids absolutely love our themed tracing activities! When I have them out for a writing workshop activity or a quick print-and-go morning review, they all but cheer. I think they enjoy them because they like seeing what character or theme is up next, and they truly love anything that lets them choose their colors and “rainbow write.” So I just know my kids will be very excited to start using these free Valentine’s Day Alphabet Tracing Printables!
*Pair with our Valentine’s Day Centers and Activities for Pre-K & Kindergarten!
Valentine’s Day Alphabet Tracing Printables
These simple, no-prep alphabet tracing printables will help your students strengthen letter writing skills in a quick and effective way!
The download includes printables for both uppercase and lowercase letters so you can choose what you would like your students to work on. Since I typically use them as a word work choice or entry task, I usually use both.

How to Use the Alphabet Tracing Printables
At this time of year, it’s about time for me to bring out some brand new packs of crayons (our others have definitely seen better days) so this always gets kids more engaged. But some of our other favorite writing tools for these printables include colored pencils, twistable crayons, skinny markers, and Pip-Squeak markers are also fun!
I find that many activities can be turned into a class favorite just by simply changing up the tools you use!
When it’s time to write, you can have students randomly trace letters or you can play a game of “Letter Hunt,” which is what I like to play in small groups.
To play, I will say a letter or sound and then kids will search or “hunt” for that letter, tracing it as they find it.
If you’re adding these printables to your literacy centers you can slip them into a dry erase pocket sleeve and give your kiddos dry erase markers to trace. It’s the perfect way to save paper and ink!
We love these Love Letters Alphabet Tracing Printables and I just know you and your kids will too!
