Kindergarten Worksheets > Alphabet Parade > Letter P
These worksheets are designed to introduce your child to the letter P. Beginning with the first worksheet in the collection, the worksheets progress from the more basic (learning to identify the letter P) to intermediate (learning to identify words that begin with the letter P sound) to complex (learning to write the uppercase and lowercase versions of the letter P).

Activity suggestions to supplement the Letter P alphabet worksheets
- Celebrate the letter P by serving P-shaped pancakes for breakfast. Have everyone wear their prettiest pajamas for the party to help showcase the letter P.
- Have a “P Party” with snacks that start with the P sound such as popcorn, peanuts, peanut butter sandwiches, pickles, potato chips, pie or pizza.
- Spread pudding on a cookie sheet and ask your child to practice writing letters in the pudding with his pointer finger. Ask him to write the letter P in different sizes, alternating between writing the uppercase letter P and the lowercase letter p. Also, write the word pudding in the pudding, showing him how it begins with the letter P.
- Repeat the “Peter Piper” tongue twister for your child. After numerous repetitions, ask him to join you as you repeat it aloud. Have him hold his hand in front of his mouth to feel the puff of air as he says the P sound.
Tips for using the Letter P tracing letters worksheets
- Writing the uppercase letter P requires two different strokes. First your child needs to draw a long, straight line downward. Then direct him to lift his pencil and draw a half circle from the top of the line to the mid-point of the line.
- Unlike the uppercase letter P, the lowercase letter P is made in one stroke. Direct your child to keep his pencil on the paper after drawing the first downward line and simply retrace that line before drawing a loop at the top.
