We used this worksheet to practice writing the letter A:
On Monday, I let her color in the letter A and the apple with crayons. I had her trace all the uppercase A's with her finger. We then used a crayon to trace the dashed A's. We did the same thing with the lowercase a's.
The rest of the week, I used a clean copy of the same worksheet in a page protector. She traced the letters with a dry erase marker. Overall, I was impressed. She did a pretty good job, seeing as this is the first time that she has ever really practiced writing or tracing lines, and she really seemed to enjoy it.
