Preschool Handwriting Practice – Lowercase {free printables!}

Share Wildflower Ramblings!

I am so excited to share our free printables for preschool handwriting practice of lowercase letters. I made the uppercase letters practice pages last week to help my son begin practice with his handwriting.  We are not focusing on lowercase letters, but some of the work we’ve done have the uppercase and lowercase letters side by side.  I am providing these for readers who are working on lowercase letters with their preschooler or kindergartener!!

These simple lowercase handwriting pages allow a child to build confidence as they begin printing letters on their own.  They provide great practice for beginners or children who are writing letters for the very first time.  These preschool handwriting worksheets allow your child to trace within the lines of a letter before trying to write the letter without any assistance except a small box.

These preschool handwriting printables help a child form their first few letters, and then, hopefully, help the child focus on muscle memory to create the last letter on his/her own.  The boxes help visualize the size the letter should be without having any arrows, numbers, or straight and dotted lines.

Advice for beginning handwriting

  • Don’t rush, follow your child’s lead.  In his time.  {Some European countries don’t begin reading instruction until age seven!}  So, he is far from behind.
  • Our homeschool work with letters begins with tactilely creating and making the letter.  This can involve manipulatives and sensory play, and I’ve written more at Tactile Uppercase Letter Writing.

A child needs a teacher

Ensure your child is utilizing good practices and proper pencil grip — it is hard to break poor habit after they’ve been established!!

I have not added arrows, numbers, dots, or lines to these preschool handwriting printables.  I think that making a child aware of the starting and ending points in the letters is very important, however, it can also become very confusing.  I made these pages specifically for my son’s needs.

Since I have not included those extra helpful dots and lines and arrows here, children should be with a teacher when using these preschool handwriting worksheets.  Creating good habits is of the utmost importance, so showing the child each and every stroke, and reinforcing it, will benefit the child in the future.  It is also important to emphasize proper pencil grip, which we are constantly working on :)  And soon, they will be printing letters correctly without any instruction!
