Letter recognition worksheets can be used to help preschool and kindergarten kids learn to recognize the letters of the alphabet in a fun and interesting way. The letters of the alphabet and numbers are among the first and basic things that small children need to learn. Kindergarten and preschool worksheets, specifically letter recognition worksheets that are cleanly designed, appealing and of interest to kids would help them keep their interest in the worksheet activity for a longer time.

Given below are a few different types of letter recognition worksheets with pictures of actual worksheets.

Before letter recognition worksheets

1. The alphabet song is a good way to start. Sing it slowly and distinctly so that children get to recognize the letter spoken.

2. Big charts with the letters of the alphabet are available. Use the chart and point out to children each letter as you sing it in the alphabet song. This is when children will slowly begin to recognize the shape of each letter.

3. Relate each letter to common objects that start with that letter, example: a for apple, b for ball etc. Again charts with such letter / picture combinations are available.

Alphabet tracing worksheets

Alphabet tracing worksheets for preschoolers can be of the type where children have to color inside letter outlines or trace over the letter. Such activities will help them recognize the letters of the alphabet and also take early steps in trying to begin forming the letters.

At first you can start with outlines of letters to color in. The letter outlines can be pretty big in size to start with, because kids are not likely to have the required dexterity to correctly manipulate a crayon or color pencil precisely and color inside a shape. The coloring can be expected to be quite clumsy to start with. Slowly over time and with practice, they will be able to color better within the shape. After this you may introduce worksheets with letters that are smaller and the still smaller in size. Avoid forcing the pace, let it happen in its own time.
