Activity suggestions to supplement the Letter W alphabet worksheets
- The letter W is one of the widest letters in the alphabet. Write the letter W next to smaller letters such as I, T or P and show your child how wide a W is. Point out that the word “wide” also starts with the letter W.
- Play a game called “Where is it?” Have your child ask you questions such as “Where is my red book?” or “Where is the milk?” and then he can give you clues to find the missing item.
- Ask your child to practice writing the uppercase letter W and lowercase letter w using watercolors. Show him how the word “watercolors” starts with the letter W.
- In a quiet place, whisper to your child a random list of words. Ask him to wave at you each time the word you whisper begins with the W sound.
Tips for using the Letter W tracing letters worksheets
- The uppercase letter W has four different segments, but is drawn with one continuous stroke. Explain to your child how each line should stretch all the way from the top black line to the bottom black line.
- Unlike the uppercase letter W, the lowercase letter w has soft curves rather than sharp angles. Direct your child to make one curve and, without picking up the pencil, draw an identical curve next to the first.
