Activity suggestions to supplement the Letter Y alphabet worksheets
- Write the letters Y and y boldly with a broad tip marker on construction paper. Give your child pieces of light colored yarn and ask him to glue the yarn on top of your lines to create yarn letters.
- Play a game called “Change the Word.” Ask your child to change the real word to a nonsense word by substituting the Y sound for the beginning consonant sound. For example, “kitten” becomes “yitten.”
- Label one side of a paper “Yummy” and the other side “Yucky.” Cut out pictures of food and ask your child to glue the pictures on the side of the page that tells how he thinks the food tastes.
- Prepare a survey sheet for your child by writing a simple question such as “Do you like yogurt?” Each time your child receives the answer “Yes,” ask him to draw an uppercase Y to mark the answer.
Tips for using the Letter Y tracing letters worksheets
- When writing the uppercase letter Y, remind your child to start by drawing a lowercase v resting on the dotted middle line. Then direct him to pick up his pencil, rest it on the bottom of the v, and draw a straight line down to complete the letter.
- Children love to think of this letter as a lowercase u with a tail. When writing the lowercase letter y, direct your child to draw a lowercase u, but to continue the downward stroke below the line, hooking under the letter to complete the tail.
