This workbook focuses on letter features. It helps students to differentiate between the lines/shapes that they will use in the letters as they learn to write the alphabet.
I use this workbook starting on the second day of Preschool. After we finish each page (1 per day), we look at letters (without learning their names) and try to find letter features. Then when it is time to learn to write letters a few weeks later, these letter features are already very familiar to the students.
The following letter features each have a 1 page focus in this book:
-Straight lines (up & down)
-Straight lines (side to side)
Each page has the students complete the following tasks:
-Trace the letter feature
-Trace the letter feature on letters
-Find the letters with that letter feature in a letter search
This product pairs wonderfully with my "ABC Letter Writing Workbook." I recommend presenting this "Letter Features Workbook" first, then moving into the "ABC Letter Writing Workbook."
This would work well as a homework booklet, a whole class writing activity, or a self start/morning work workbook!
