Learning About Uppercase and Lowercase Letters:
EXPLORING THE ALPHABET IN PRESCHOOL AND KINDERGARTEN SHOULD BE VARIED, CONSISTENT, AND NEVER BORING.
HANDS-ON ALPHABET ACTIVITIES MAKE LEARNING FUN AND ENGAGING FOR YOUNG LEARNERS.
Learning letter names and sounds obviously forms an important literary foundation for young children. It’s typically some of the first learning they do upon entering preschool and kindergarten, and it will become one of the most valuable, as they begin to crack the code we call reading.
I love introducing letters and sounds to early learners because kids learn SO MUCH in a relatively short period of time. It’s magic to see them recognizing and naming uppercase letters, when on the fist day of school they maybe only knew the letters in their own name!
These interactive worksheets for the letter E include so many ways to explore one letter! It gives opportunities for students to identify and name both uppercase and lowercase letter versions, practice writing and tracing the letter, identify words that begin with letter E, sort and discriminate letter E from other letters, and there are even opportunities to read CVC/CVCC words!
There are so many ways teachers can use this awesome packet!
In addition to simply practicing handwriting with a free letter tracing worksheet, you could:
- Use one of the specific pages that you like to introduce each letter of the alphabet consistently throughout the school year.
- Place the coloring pages or do-a-dot pages at a center for kids to explore independently.
- Work with small groups on correct letter formation with any letter(s) in the week’s curriculum.
- Send the tracing letter worksheets home with students that could use extra practice.
- Teach students to play the Roll and Write page with a partner as a way to introduce games, taking turns, and other social skills.
What Can Preschoolers Learn From Alphabet Worksheets?
LETTER E WORKSHEETS FOR PRESCHOOL AND KINDERGARTEN
PRINTABLE ACTIVITIES ARE A LOW-COST, LOW-PREP WAY FOR YOUR STUDENTS TO ACTIVELY ENGAGE WITH EACH LETTER AND IT’S SOUND.
Letter worksheets in preschool and kindergarten are way more than a rote way for students to show you what they know. Because letter names and sounds are brand new to many students, they instead become a way for students to explore each letter in a variety of interesting ways.
Guide students to think about each letter based on the skill you want them focused on. Whether it’s letter formation, sound recognition, letter naming and recognition, or penmanship, this packet gives you lots of options!
- What is the name of this letter?
- What sound does it make?
- Can you think of two words that begin with /e/?
- Does this letter look like another letter?
- Do you have this letter in your name?
- Does uppercase E look the same/different than lowercase e?
Why Is It Important For Kids To Complete Preschool Letter Worksheets?
Learning letters and sounds in varied ways gives kids confidence and pride in learning and accomplishing goals. In addition, learning the alphabet sets the stage for a number of other valuable skills.

Laminate the find and color pages and place them next to a set of cubes, blocks, or other small manipulative. Ask students to identify each picture, then place a block on those that begin with /e/.

Turn roll and write into a partner game, where students take turns to roll, then trace the letter E. When it isn’t their turn, they can trace the letter in the air.
