Toddlers and Letters


Easy way to help toddlers practice letter writing.

1. With a highlighter, write a letter in a repeated pattern to fill half the page.

2. With a pen, fill the second half of the page with the same letter in the same repeated pattern.

3. Allow toddler to trace the highlighted letters with a pencil.

4. Allow toddler to trace the pen letters with highlighter.

My three year old loved this and it kept her busy. I continued verbally saying the correct way to write the letter while she was doing it. For example with the “M” I would say: “Down, pick up your pencil, down, up, down.”
