Activity suggestions to supplement the Letter Z alphabet worksheets
- Boldly write an uppercase letter Z and a lowercase letter z on construction paper. Give your child a sheet of paper hole reinforcements (found in office supply stores) and ask him to cover each Z with the “zeros.”
- When your child is on the playground, ask him to pretend he is a bumble bee and “buzz” around. Encourage him to elongate the ending “zzzz” sound on the word “buzz” as he zooms around.
- Use masking tape to create a zigzag line on the sidewalk or driveway. Ask your child to think of a real or nonsense word that begins with the Z sound. Each time he says a Z word, he can move to the next point on the zigzag line.
- Go through your child’s closet or your own, counting how many pieces of clothing have zippers. Each time your child spies a zipper, encourage him to announce “zip, zip, zip” before hunting for the next zipper. Write down the word zipper on a piece of paper so he can clearly see that it begins with the letter Z.
Tips for using the Letter Z tracing letters worksheets
- The letter Z is a zig-zag letter. This letter requires three lines, but is made with one continuous stroke. Explain to your child that the first and third lines are totally flat, and that the second line goes diagonally down the page.
- When learning to write the lowercase letter z, direct your child to begin on the dashed middle line and then to draw the horizontal top line, the diagonal middle line, and the horizontal bottom line without lifting up his pencil.
