These Letter S Worksheets Include:
Outline of Each Letter
This page is very versatile. I recommend having one that you can laminate and one that kids can mark on. For the laminated version, kids can use playdough or a dry erase marker to trace the capital and lowercase letters. This page can also be used as a craft page. Kids can glue pictures of things that start with an Ss inside the letter. Another option is to cut out Ss from magazines and glue them inside. Your imagination is the only limit to how you can use the Letter S worksheets.
Capital and Lower Case Sorting Activites
There are two different sorting activities to help reinforce the concept of a capital letter and a lowercase letter. The snowflake is perfect for hands-on practice. Once they have done that activity they can take the black and white sort and glue it into an interactive notebook. This page is also perfect for practicing their scissor cutting and gluing skills.
Dot Painting and Seek n Find
There are three Letter S worksheets where kids get to work on their small motor skills while practicing the letter. Grab some dot paint and letter them practice dot painting the letters. There are two seek n find activities where each kiddo has to search for, find, and color in the Letter Ss.
Writing the Letter S
Learning to write involves a combination of skills and abilities and an understanding of language. Because of this it usually is a skill that progresses much later. If a child is recognizing letters, their sounds, and has the fine motor skills to grip a pencil or crayon they are ready to practice writing their letters. There are two Letter A worksheets that help them with their writing skills. The first one teaches them how to form the letter by making simple marks on a line. You can practice these lines in an interactive notebook before practicing on the page, You might even choose to put this page into an interactive notebook. The second activity is similar but just has them tracing letters with the letter guides to help them. Bottom line is that writing to come alongside reading for a well-rounded literacy program.
