Writing the Alphabet

Help your children learn their ABC's by tracing letters with Big Bird.

Print out the page and help children trace each letter. Then sing the alphabet together, pointing at each letter as you sing it out loud! (Don’t worry if kids don’t trace the letters exactly—there’s still lots of learning going on. You can help by guiding their hands to steady the pencil as they trace.)

You might help older children think of a word for each letter. After tracing the whole alphabet, give them a blank piece of paper and invite them to try some letters on their own!
