These worksheets are used at our CEFA Early Learning schools for our 4 year old children (Junior Kindergarten Three), and presented only after our students have had practice with lowercase letters.

If your child is heading to kindergarten and you would like to try these at home, make sure you follow the directions indicated on the large letters (green means start, red means stop, and the arrows will point you in the right direction.

We teach this to our students one child at a time, as the teacher needs to observe to make sure the child is following the right directions (otherwise they are learning it and practicing it wrong, which will impact their writing skills in the future). Make sure you do the same so your child can learn to write the right way (no pun intended!).

Four to five

How to Make It


  • Paper
  • A printer

Let’s Get Started!

  • Print the worksheets
  • Invite your child to practice writing
  • Give them a fine felt marker if they are beginners, because a pencil is harder for them
  • Only do a maximum of one worksheet a day
  • If your child wants to keep working, invite them to draw the instruments corresponding to each letter instead. Drawing is excellent to prepare your child to write.

Learning Opportunities

This activity will give your child literacy skills: they will learn writing
skills as they trace the letters and reading skills as they identify the letter and the sound it makes, as well as try to read the name of the instrument, with your help.

Since the worksheets are all about musical instruments, your child will also learn about music.

Extended Learning Opportunities

  • Talk about the instruments and what they sound like.
  • Find a video of someone playing each one of those instruments (youtube is your friend here) so your child can hear what it sounds like
  • Visit a music store to see some of these instruments firsthand
  • Find out which letters are in your child’s name
  • See which letters are in your name, in their siblings’ names, etc.
  • Help your child write their name at the bottom of the practice sheet
