Making the ABC Book

I wanted to keep all of the letter tracing sheets together in an easy to grab busy bag book for my boys. After printing and cutting the freebie (below), I picked up a 4 x 6 photo album from the dollar store and slid the pages inside the sleeves.

Letter Tracing

Giving kids plenty of practice forming letters is an important step in helping them become independent writers. When children can write the ABC’s automatically, their brains are freed up to work on other parts of writing like identifying letter sounds and adding punctuation.

Since I wanted the boys to learn correct letter formation, I included a little GO sign at the start of each letter. My boys placed the car on the road next to the sign and drove their car across the letter.

  1. Hey there, I downloaded this book I feel like 2 years ago. My kids are older and I’m looking to make a couple of activity books while we are on a 2-month trip between homes. I’m wondering where you got the road letters from? If it’s a font or if you made them yourself?

  2. I have a question about using the road letters. Some appear easy to use: C, G, O, S, etc. because they are one continuous stroke. How do you approach letters like A, F, H, where they must pick the car up and move them instead of driving continuously? How do you verbally explain it?

  3. Thank you for the car letter tracing sheets
