What educators are saying

I have used rainbow writing in the past. I was looking for something better. This was it. My kids love it!
We use this weekly to practice reviewing letters we have previously learned. I like to use it in stations the most


Includes All UPPERCASE AND LOWERCASE LETTERS and focuses on 26 beginning letter sounds. All the vowel sounds included are for short vowel sounds.

You can use this pack with ANY curriculum! I use one worksheet a week. I pick the letter that corresponds with the letter I am teaching for the week. For example, if my focus for the week is the letter ”O”, I use the letter “O” worksheet in this packet.

I have used this pack as individual worksheets (in a center or for homework) and as a book. Students keep their book in their desk, and I have them pull it out each week to work on the assigned letter for the week. To make the book, you can staple all the pages and cover together or bind it with a binding spine!

In this pack you will find two different worksheet style options and answer keys. The first worksheet option is to print individually. It includes a name line and student directions on each worksheet. The second option is to print as a book. It includes a book cover and no name lines. Each letter contains direction arrows for proper letter formation.

Each worksheet includes three sections with different activities:

1. Rainbow write each letter with crayons or markers. Use the colors of the rainbow. It's an enjoyable way to get in lots of letter formation practice.

2. Say the name of the letter and the picture next to it, name the letter sound, and trace the letters on the top right corner with a pencil or a marker.

3. Find and color all the pictures that start with the letter on the page.

*Each section is numbered from 1-3.

*Challenge students to spell the words for each picture they color.

Addressed Skills:

  • Letter recognition
  • Letter name and sound
  • Letter writing and proper formation
  • Initial sounds
  • Phoneme isolation
  • color words

This set is perfect for letter introduction, a literacy station, or RTI.
