Free Printable Letter P Worksheets: Tracing, Letter Recognition, Alphabet Sounds

I know what you’re thinking, “worksheets, in a pre-k classroom?” As educators and parents we try to steer clear of dull, ditto sheets that bore our children and make them disinterested in writing. Listen, I get it. I agree with you. These free printables however are so much more than boring worksheets. While we don’t recommend a letter of the week curriculum, the letter P worksheets for preschoolers are a hands on group of letter recognition worksheets that prepare our kids for reading and writing. They also provide engaging, hands on tactics for authentic work.

BUILDING LETTER AND LETTER SOUND RECOGNITION IS AN ESSENTIAL PART OF LEARNING TO READ AND WRITE. WHEN USING THE KINDERGARTEN LETTER WORKSHEETS STUDENTS CAN ANSWER QUESTIONS LIKE:

  • What letters look like the letter P?
  • How can I use lines and curves to write the letter P?
  • How does a capital letter P look different than a lowercase p?
  • Why are the three lines important for tracing or writing letters?

The letter tracing worksheets (free) can be used for preschool and/or Kindergarten students. The BEST part is when you laminate the printable activities you can reuse them time and time again.
