Handwriting is a skill that is largely focused on in the preschool and early elementary years and traceable letter worksheets are invaluable tools for teaching it. These worksheets contain dashed letters, which children trace over, serving as a guide for helping them to learn how to correctly form the letters. Creating these worksheets is a fairly simple task; all that is needed is a computer, a Web browser and a printer and you'll be able to create an ample supply of traceable letter worksheets.

  1. 1

    Open up your computer's Web browser. Go to the "Basic Print Large Size" page of the Handwriting Worksheets website. A page that displays the title "Basic Print Large Size" will be opened.

  2. 2

    Type in the letter that you wish to provide practice with writing into the white text box. If you wish to have students practice writing a lower case letter, simply type the letter in the box. If you wish to provide students with practice writing upper case letters, press the "Shift" key and type the letter in the text box at the same time.

  3. 3

    Click on the "Make Worksheet" icon below the text box. The website will generate six dashed, traceable letters.

  4. 4

    Open your browser's "File" tab and click on the "Print" icon. Indicate the amount of copies you wish to print in the "Number of copies" section of the print page that appears.

  5. 5

    Print the copies of the traceable letter worksheet and distribute them to students.
