Activity suggestions to supplement the Letter Q alphabet worksheets
- Look in a child’s dictionary under the letter Q and read aloud the words in that section, pointing to each word as you read it. If your child notices that each q is followed by the letter u, explain that the letters q and u combine to make the “kw” sound.
- Say aloud random words, many having the “kw” sound of “qu” at the start. Ask your child to show you the “quiet sign” (finger in front of his mouth) each time he hears a word that beings with the Q sound.
- Write a long row of letters on a sheet of paper, including the letters Q and q and the letters O and p (which look similar to Q and q). Ask your child to circle only the uppercase and lowercase Qs on the row.
- Make up a silly story for your child about the “Quiet Queen.” The Quiet Queen likes to eat cake, or maybe the Quiet Queen likes to bake. Each time you say the Q sound, ask your child to raise his hand or clap.
Tips for using the Letter Q tracing letters worksheets
- Children love to think of the uppercase letter Q letter as a “fancy O.” After your child draws an O, direct him to pick up his pencil and add the short line that crosses the lower right side of the O.
- Remind your child to write the lowercase letter q in one stroke, so the loop and two lines are connected seamlessly. As he completes the straight line downward, remind him to veer sharply to the right to give the q its tail.
