Why is letter recognition important?

Put simply, letter recognition is a foundational skill that all beginning readers need to master in order to figure out how printed text sounds (decoding). Kids with letter identification struggles tend to have a harder time with letter sounds and recognizing words.

This is a no prep resource. That means you don’t need to worry about using up tons of printer ink or spending money on expensive school and art supplies. No laminating or cutting is involved. It’s as easy as downloading, printing, and watching your child do all the work.

Your kid will identify the upper and lowercase letter A in many different ways. They will trace, color, cut and paste their way through our practice worksheets. You’ll need a few basic school supplies like crayons or markers (or colored pencils, or glitter gel pens) to complete the activities.

If you’d like to reuse your printables, place them in sheet protectors and your child will cover all the letter A’s that they find (pictures above). You don’t need anything fancy to cover up the letters. A cotton ball or a dab of play dough will do! You could also use a  dry-erase marker and have your child circle or color in all the letter A’s. The marker will easily wipe off of the sheet protectors, which makes for a simple and reusable resource!

More tips for practicing letter identification with your kids

  • You can complete these worksheets in any order. You don’t even have to start with the Letter A. Follow your child’s interest and go from there! In fact, I don’t recommend teaching the alphabet in ABC order. You can start with high-frequency letters such as c, a, o, g, d, t, or with the letters in your child’s name.
  • As you watch your child complete these activities, start prompting them to name the sound of each letter and talk about words that start with that sound. For example, the letter A makes the /a/ sound (start with the short /a/ sound) like in the word “apple.” What are some other words that start with A and make the /a/ sound? [axe, ant, alligator, astronaut, attic, antlers]
  • You want to make this experience enjoyable for your child. Allow them to have creative freedom when it comes to completing these practice worksheets to help them develop confidence and a positive attitude towards learning.
  • Be patient with your child. Every child is different and learns differently. Always feel free to adapt these resources to fit your child’s needs and interests. And remember to have fun!
