Although we typically use worksheets sparingly in preschool and kindergarten, they absolutely have a time and a place. While hands-on activities and real-life experiences tend to catch children’s attention, it’s also important for students to practice tracing lines, cutting, and gluing (fine motor skills). These letter C tracing worksheets also give children the opportunity to recognize letter formation and sounds. Even if you don’t follow a letter of the week curriculum, you can use these alphabet activities for extra practice or review. Your students will love practicing the letter C with these letter worksheets for preschool and kindergarten.

Learning About Letter Recognition:

letter recognition worksheets


When children can recognize letters as printed language that matches with a specific sound, they can begin prereading.

These letter C worksheets for preschool or kindergarten are a fun and engaging way to reinforce or review the letter and its initial sound. It’s beneficial to model how to complete the activities and offer differentiation based on your kids’ needs. Try using the printable in literacy centers, pre-writing centers, or as a independent activity. The letter tracing worksheets can also be helpful for English language learners.

The letter C worksheets will allow your child to practice tracing letters, sorting uppercase letters and lowercase letters, reading simple sentences, writing, and one-to-one correspondence.

In addition to letter recognition, here are additional ideas to incorporate using the free letter tracing worksheets:

  • Writing with the age appropriate pencil grip.
  • Sorting and classifying uppercase and lowercase letters.
  • Subitizing and one-to-one correspondence on rolling dice.
  • Identify words that begin with the letter ‘C’.

Why Is It Important For Kids To Identify Letter Sounds?

Besides the fact that kids enjoy making silly sounds and rhymes, there are so many other reasons you should practice letter sounds with your child using the free beginning sounds worksheets and letter C preschool worksheets.

Visual Discrimination

Identifying letters (both lower and uppercase) encourages kids to use visual cues to discern between them. This is an important skill when later discerning letters to decode words.

Improve Understanding

As children learn to name uppercase and lower case letters and sounds, it helps them connect to what “reading” really means and gives them valuable insight and background to the idea that they, too, will soon learn to read!


The goal is for children to effortlessly recognize letter names and sounds interchangeably before they begin to put the pieces together to learn to read. If recalling sounds is too laborious, it will be difficult for a child to read with fluency.


Kids learn with time and repetition to accurately name all of the letters and sounds. Imagine how proud they feel when they accomplish such a lofty goal!
