So, here’s the deal – teaching all the letters and sounds to every single student can be a bit of a challenge, right? But fear not, my fellow teacher! It’s all about being patient and mixing things up. Those little learners of yours? They need loads of chances to get to know these quirky shapes we call letters, each with its own name and sound. I know you’ve pondered this (because you’re the awesome teacher that you are!). Wrangling the alphabet into little minds is no easy feat, which is exactly why I whipped up these fun Free Printable Letter D Alphabet Worksheets just for you. You’re welcome!

Skills from Letter D Alphabet Worksheets
LETTER AND SOUND WORKSHEETS FOR EARLY CHILDHOOD
PRINTABLE ACTIVITIES ARE MY GO-TO FOR REINFORCING THE LETTER OF THE WEEK, LETTER SOUNDS, AND LETTER FORMATIONS.
These are NOT your average letter recognition worksheets! They easily transform into hands-on learning to provide invaluable practice with everything alphabet: letter names, letter sounds, letter formations, and more!
I swear, I would NEVER just hand my kids a worksheet and turn them loose! The Letter D worksheets should be used intentionally to practice the skill(s) you are focusing on.
Preschool letter worksheets might be more about recognizing and discerning between uppercase and lowercase letters, while older students are more ready to begin tackling correct letter formation with worksheets.
I love the diversity of the Letter D worksheets for preschool and kindergarten because you can pick and choose what you want your students to practice. You can adapt as necessary, and even provide hands-on manipulatives to use instead of just pencil and paper.
Here are a few of the potential skills to focus on using the kindergarten letter worksheets:
- Letter Tracing: THREE different versions, depending on abilities/motor skill development
- Cut and Sort: uppercase vs. lowercase and first sound pictures
- Read and Color: sight words/first sound/CVC and CVCC words
- Find the Letter Worksheets: I Spy and grid formats
- Roll and Write: A fun dice game to practice writing Letter D
- Rainbow Writing: A colorful way to complete a tracing letter worksheet
- First Sound: Pictures and words to help children hear the /d/ sound at the beginning of words
- Do-a-dot Marker: Large letter shapes to help young learners explore Letter D
Teaching the Letter D with the Letter D Alphabet Worksheets
LEARNING LETTERS AND SOUNDS IN PRESCHOOL AND KINDERGARTEN
LEARNING THE ALPHABET IS NO SMALL TASK. IN ORDER TO HAVE A FIRM FOUNDATION TO BUILD LATER READING SKILLS UPON, KIDS MUST LEARN LETTER NAMES, SOUNDS, AND FORMATIONS.
Working with the alphabet helps children begin to understand that these funny shapes we call letters have a specific purpose and help us crack a code we call reading. Letter tracing worksheets, free, give necessary repeated practice.
Help your students understand the bigger picture with questions like:
- What are the letters in your name?
- How many sounds do you have in your name?
- What other words start with the /d/ sound?
- Does letter D have curvy lines, straight lines, or both?
- Which lowercase letters look the same as its uppercase letter?
