Bettijo’s daughter is starting Kindergarten this year, and we wanted to help her brush up a bit on her letters. We created a new Alphabet Handwriting Drill, and Bettijo made about a hundred copies to keep on hand this summer. I realized that we have quite a few worksheets that are perfect for getting your little one ready for Kindergarten. Here they are compiled into one handy post.
Recognizing Uppercase and Lowercase Letters
Pairing upper and lower case letters is a great way to review all the letters (and even their sounds) in an exciting way. Check out our Letter Matching worksheet to get you started.
Oh, it’s hard to write this with a straight face because we Moms know the trouble scissors can create. Nonetheless, learning to use scissors properly is an essential Kindergarten skill. Our simple Shooting Star exercise provides an entertaining review of (or perhaps introduction to) scissors.
Even with preschool, Kindergarten is perhaps the first time our little ones will be expected to follow directions. Our Directional Worksheet not only helps master left and right concepts, it is also the perfect excuse to review basic shapes.
Mastering Numbers 1 through 20
Our Sunshine Counting worksheet provides a great excuse to practice counting to 20. If that’s too easy–challenge your kindergartner to do it backwards!
Our Alphabet Handwriting Drill works out both the upper and lowercase letters. Trace the alphabet twice then practice doing writing it once on your own!
