I love introducing letters and sounds to preschoolers! It’s magic to see the pride on their faces when they begin to be able to name and write letters while also remembering specific letter sounds. Repetition, time, and patience are key to guiding young learners to learn the alphabet because there is so much to learn! I created the Free Printable Letter K Alphabet Worksheets with Tracing, Letter Recognition, and Alphabet Sounds for busy teachers. It’s low-prep, yet high engagement. These are not your average letter tracing worksheets! I included lots of varied options for hands-on exploration and room for teachers to get as creative as they want to without a ton of prep. Enjoy!

LETTER WORKSHEETS IN PRESCHOOL AND KINDERGARTEN
IT’S COMMON FOR KIDS TO LEARN LETTER NAMES AND SOUNDS IN CONJUNCTION, BUT THAT CAN ALSO LEAD TO CONFUSION. THEY NEED LOTS OF REPETITION AND PRACTICE TO BECOME COMFORTABLE WITH NAMES, SOUNDS, AND LETTER FORMATION.

Discerning between uppercase and lowercase letters, as well as individual sounds, is key for future reading success. However, it takes a lot of practice for preschoolers and kindergarteners to become fluent with these skills.

The letter K preschool worksheets are great for introducing letters, as well as for giving students that varied practice with each letter.

These letter tracing worksheets can serve as a way not only to teach proper letter formation, but I also included pictures on each page that begin with /k/ so students can also practice the sound while they practice writing the letter.

Use the Letter K packet as a letter of the week activity, as a year-end review of the entire alphabet, or pick and choose the printable activities you like for the literacy center.

Here are the key skills I included in the free letter K worksheet set:

  • 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

What Can Preschoolers Learn From Letter Recognition Worksheets?

LEARNING LETTERS AND SOUNDS with preschoolers AND KINDERGARTENERS
IT’S IMPORTANT TO KEEP YOUNG LEARNERS ENGAGED WITH LEARNING THE ALPHABET. THEY NEED SMALL DOSES AND MINI SUCCESSES ALONG THE WAY TO STAY MOTIVATED AND CONFIDENT.

The letter K tracing worksheets are varied so you can pick and choose based on your students’ needs, skills and abilities.

As you progress throughout the school year, use preschool letter worksheets and activities to help kids think deeper about letters and sounds. Making connections helps them understand the bigger purpose of letters: to read!

  • What are the letters in your name?
  • Do you have letter K in your name?
  • What other words start with the /k/ sound?
  • Does letter K have curvy lines, straight lines, or both?
  • Does lowercase k look the same as uppercase K?

Why Is It Important For Kids To Complete Letter Sounds Worksheets?

Variety is the spice of life and the spice that keeps kids learning! When we offer letter formation alongside letter recognition and sound practice, we keep learning spicy for all kids.

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.

Automaticity

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.

Improve Understanding

As children learn to name 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!

Confidence

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

Reusable Pages

Playdough Mats

Sensory Bin

Hide letters in the sensory bin and ask students to search for uppercase and lowercase K. Use one of the free letter tracing worksheets to place the Ks on when found.

Make a K Book

Students who are ready for sight word reading can staple the Read and Color pages together to make a Letter K book for practice.

Play a Game

Many of the letter formation worksheets in the Letter K packet can easily be converted into simple games where students get practice rolling dice, taking turns, and placing or moving objects onto a “gameboard.”
