Free printable letter X alphabet worksheets for preschool and kindergarten

Learning About Uppercase and Lowercase Letters:

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 Printable 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?

Provides Flexibility

“Thank you for creating and sharing such great worksheets and activities. You are truly talented. I love the 3 different handwriting formats. I find that a lot of students have different learning styles and the 3 different formats provide me with flexibility to help many different students.”- Carrie M. School Based OT Asst.
