Activity suggestions to supplement the Letter J alphabet worksheets
- Using your index finger, draw the uppercase letter J and lowercase letter j on your child’s back and ask him to identify each letter you write. Challenge him to identify whether the letter has a line at the top or a dot as a hint. Then switch positions and let your child “write” on your back.
- Look in a child’s dictionary under the letter J and read all the words that are in that section. Point to the printed word as you read and then ask your child to point to the word as he repeats it.
- Say a string of words aloud and ask your child to do a jumping jack and repeat after you when you say a word that starts with the sound made by the letter J.
- Print a group of words on small cards, many of which begin with the uppercase or lowercase version of the letter J. Hand your child an empty jar and ask him to fill it with only the J words.
Tips for using the Letter J tracing letters worksheets
- While most writing requires children to draw from left to right, writing an uppercase letter J requires the opposite movement. As your child’s vertical line nears the bottom line of the paper, direct him to “hook” backwards to the left.
- As with the uppercase letter J, your child will need to draw in the backwards direction of right to left as he completes the bottom “hook” of the lowercase letter j. Remind your child to add a small dot above the letter at the end.
