At three and four years old, my daughters are eager to learn to read. However, there are some things children should learn how to do in order for them to grasp and build reading skills. Letter recognition, sounds (phonics) and writing are prerequisites.
Most sources suggest letter writing skills are developed between the ages of three and four. We all know every child develops these skills in their own time, so if your child is between the ages of three and four and doesn’t seem quite ready to jump into writing, don’t worry! When they are ready they will let you know.
I recently taught a reading readiness class at our local co-op for a group of almost 30 three to five year olds. The goal of the class was to develop the necessary skills to prepare or reading. Together, we reviewed letters, their sounds, learned sight words and used worksheets I created, similar to the ones in this packet. (I only did a little tweaking of the worksheets we used in class.) These worksheets were great resources for the students, which is why I am sharing them with you.
What’s in The A to Z Writing Worksheets Packet
In this download you will receive nine pages of letter tracing and writing that include a section for letter recognition, which I like to call the phonics section. You could also use the phonics section to practice sight word recognition.
