Tracing Letters is a fun workbook designed for the youngest writers, teaching students proper letter formation by teaching them to trace the letters of the alphabet.
• Part one of this book covers the letters of the alphabet and their sounds.
• Part two reviews the alphabet and encourages children to trace words.
Directions along with scripted questions are given to assist parents and teachers as they introduce the letters and the letter sounds. The italicized words given in the Lesson section are the answers to the scripted questions given in the Questions to Ask section.
Also, because children of this age enjoy coloring, black and white illustrations are included. In addition to being fun, the act of coloring helps children to strengthen the muscles in their fingers and hands and enables children to master handwriting faster.
Note: By design this book primarily introduces the short vowel sounds—the vowel sounds to which most children are first introduced as they learn to read CVC words.
