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.
