How to begin writing the letter S using the worksheets.
Before preschool kids start learning to write the letter "s" using these preschool worksheets, teachers and parents should start by showing them how to hold writing materials such as pencils and crayons. Because kindergarten students love coloring pages, crayons should be a good fit for your kids in an attempt to strike intrigue.
Once the students are comfortable with holding writing materials, then it is time to move to the next step which involves tracing the letter s. The letter s worksheets have dotted lines that are used to represent the letter s. Trace through the dotted lines to form capital letters and lowercase letters. This task needs a lot of repetition and practice to sharpen your skills. If you intend to use the same worksheet several times then it is advisable to use the dry erase markers.
When the younger children are comfortably tracing alphabet letters, then it is time to move on to writing the letter s without the tracing letter s worksheets. This step can be a little difficult at first but with consistent practice, the students will begin to enjoy the process.
The third step is practicing letter recognition and letter identification. This is where alphabet worksheets become even more interesting for preschoolers. The teachers should have students identify the letter "s" from a group of words. To have the exercise done in a fun way, the students should mention the names of objects that begin with the letter s. The process should also be repeated as many times as necessary. The teachers should be patient and open to hearing all of the ideas of each student.
Additionally, the teachers should be as expressive as possible when explaining the differences between the uppercase letters and the lower case letters s. These two may look alike but they are definitely different and the students should clearly understand their disparities and be able to identify and trace them as they are.
With all these, we are now ready to move from tracing and writing one letter. We are now moving to trace words or sentences using our alphabet worksheets. The students can start by tracing the word spider on the letter s worksheet and later move to trace full sentences before starting to write the words and sentences on their own without tracing worksheets.
In conclusion, the teachers should remember to teach the students the importance of good spacing and good handwriting practice. This will enable them to produce very neat and easily readable writing that a reader appreciates.
