Tips for Using Writing Worksheets

Writing worksheets can help your child develop essential writing and literacy skills needed for school and life. Help your child make the most of writing worksheets for kids by following our recommended tips and tricks:

  • Use letter writing worksheets as a way to introduce your child to a chosen letter of the day, or even a letter of the week! Start your day with a letter writing worksheet to get your child familiar with the symbol and how to draw it. Challenge your child to find the letter written down in three different places over the course of the day. As the day goes on, you can have him write the letter in unusual places, like in a foggy bathroom mirror or with his peas at dinner. Make learning a letter a special event everyday.
  • Writing worksheets for kids can be great pre-reading or post-reading activities. Find a writing prompt that revolves around the subject of your story or lesson to complete before the reading assignment. Writing worksheets can revolve around physical objects that are in the story, such as snow or animals, or they can have a similar lesson about giving, emotions, or anything else.
  • Use writing worksheets to introduce your child to a new language. Our selection of foreign language writing worksheets help your child learn non-alphabetic languages in a simple way. These worksheets are great for kids who are learning about a new culture.
