A-Z Trace and Build Templates

Pin It

Uppercase Trace and Build Templates


Let your preschooler discover what types of lines it takes to build an uppercase letter!  I recommend laminating these pages not only for durability, but also for repeated use as dry erase templates for your child to practice tracing each letter.  Your child will learn where each letter sits in reference to the top, bottom, and mid-lines and will learn in which order to make each stroke by laying the pieces down in the correct order.



Uppercase Trace and Build Pieces


This is to be used with the Uppercase Trace and Build Templates, but may be used on its own.  These pieces include all of the lines and curves that are required to build all of the uppercase letters.  I recommend printing these on colored paper and laminating them for optimal ease of use.  Have your preschooler first practice building the letters on the templates, and as they progress, let them build the letters on their own.



Lowercase Trace and Build Templates

I am offering these for free because they are not one hundred percent perfect.  I really wanted to use a few shapes and be able to make all the letters of the alphabet from them.  That is very difficult to do while still producing letters that look normal.  With that said, there is still a lot of benefit to be had with these templates.  Please use and enjoy them while ignoring or modifying a few letters that do not look just how you'd like them to.
