Caterpillar Fill In The Missing Letters – Alphabet Worksheets
On each worksheet, letters are missing that they must identify and write. There are several “fill-in” the missing letter worksheets available.
These worksheets can be used by parents in homeschooling, by teachers, or by daycare centers.
They are aimed at kindergarteners who are first learning to say, read and write their alphabet. The worksheets can be used to reinforce all three of these goals for the alphabet with various activities.
In a group setting, you could give each child a different worksheet with different letters missing. The children say their alphabet slowly and each child pipes up when their missing letter is said.
Then they write the letter for practice. For additional practice, laminate the worksheets and use with erasable markers. You can erase them and mix them up, repeating the exercise with the children so that everyone gets a chance to write all of the letters.
If using these worksheets in a one-on-one setting, have the child say their alphabet and recognize the missing letter. Then ask them to write the letter.
Laminating the worksheets works well in this case as well because the child can erase and practice over and over again until they get it just right.
If the child is struggling with creating the missing letter, you can pull out some handwriting paper or use a whiteboard to help them practice.
