Free Printable – Alphabet Tracing
Happy Monday Freebie! Today I am sharing my free printable Easy Alphabet Tracing activity. I have bought so many activity books hoping that “this will be the one cookie likes”. The first issue with activity books is that the print is too small. The second issue is the lines (which are made to help) actually make it difficult for kids with autism.
I could see cookie getting stressed thinking: “Which line do I trace?” This extra visual information distracts him from the task of tracing the letter and puts too much pressure on this little perfectionist to trace perfectly between the lines. You can read more about it in this post.
During our school time, I try different types of activities. Sometimes, I’m very happy and proud that he understands and is motivate to learn. While other days, I’m
begging looking for a way to convince him to stay and complete the activity. Most of the time, him wanting to escape is due to educational material that is not adapted to his learning needs. Thankfully my mistakes have taught me a lot.
The varied colours in this activity help children differentiate one letter from the other. With a simple white background and only one LARGE letter per page, it is much easier to trace the upper-case alphabet!
This document is 27 pages so you might want to print on both sides to save paper. You could use a duo tang folder to hold the pages but I suggest presenting one sheet at a time. Otherwise, some children could become anxious or overwhelmed thinking they have to complete the complete alphabet if you show them all at once (speaking from experience). Hope you and your little ones have lots of fun with this activity.
