Using Hands-on Letter X Alphabet Worksheets

LETTER OF THE WEEK with preschoolers

Although printable worksheets sometimes get a bad wrap, when used with a little creativity they can give students that valuable practice and repetition they need to master letter formation and naming.

I made the Letter X packet to cover all of the bases! It includes opportunities for students to work on a number of different alphabet activities, depending on what they need.

The Letter X worksheets for preschool and kindergarten are ideal to use at a learning center, with small groups, or as a whole class.

Many of the pages can easily be converted into a game, coloring page, or activity that employs motor skills and physical manipulation to strengthen fine motor muscles and help the learning stick.

The Letter X preschool worksheets include:

  • 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 X
  • Rainbow Writing: A colorful way to complete a tracing letter worksheet
  • First Sound: Pictures and words to help children hear the /x/ sound at the end of words
  • Do-a-dot Marker: Large letter shapes to help young learners explore Letter X

What Can Preschoolers Learn From Letter X Alphabet Worksheets Activities?


When children first begin instruction about the alphabet, they really just see letters as shapes. That is why reversals are so common. A chair is still a chair, even when flipped on its side, right? Well, kids see letters in the same way!

The tracing worksheets help students get the repetitive practice they need to form lowercase and capital letters with ease and automaticity.

The letter sound worksheets help connect each letter with the sound it makes. Letter X is a tricky one because it is typically found at the end of a word, not the beginning.

Help students think deeper about letters and sounds by including some thoughtful questions in daily lessons and weekly curriculum activities:

  • What are the letters in your name?
  • How many sounds do you have in your name?
  • What other words start have the /ks/ sound?
  • Does letter X have curvy lines, straight lines, or both?
  • Does uppercase X look like lowercase x?

Using Letter X Alphabet Worksheets Beyond Alphabet Recognition

Besides the fact that kids love engaging, hands-on activities, there are so many other reasons to vary your instruction with letter tracing worksheets and more.

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.


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!

Build 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!

How to Make the Activity:

To Prep:

Print the Letter X Worksheet packet. Laminate/protect any of the pages that you would like to make reusable.

To Use:

There are so many creative ways to implement the free beginning sounds worksheets!

Decide how to meet the needs of your students. You can laminate and place them at the literacy center, use them in small groups, or teach your class a game.

Extend the Activity:

First Sound Cards

If you download my whole set of letter recognition worksheet alphabet printables, you can use the Find and Color pages for each letter at the literacy center to help build first sound fluency.

Reusable Pages

Laminate the traceable letter worksheets for free and use dry erase markers for easy, repeated practice on letter formation and fine motor skills.

Playdough Mats

The do-a-dot Letter X page lends itself to a nice playdough mat. Protect the page with laminating film or pockets, and allow students to roll, squish, and sculpt playdough letters.

Sensory Bin

Hide letters in the sensory bin and ask students to search for uppercase and lowercase X. Use one of the kindergarten letter worksheets activity pages to place the Xs on when found.

Make an ‘X’ Book

Students who are ready for sight word reading can staple the free letter tracing worksheet Read and Color pages together to make a Letter X book for practice.

Play a Game

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