Color and Trace Alphabets

If you are looking for a tracing alphabets activity for your children then you have come to the right place. Once the child can trace basic curves, slanting and straight lines, it is time to learn how to trace capital letters. It is better to begin first with capital letters as they have lesser curves than lowercase letters. Hence, these worksheets are for helping children trace their first letters. I would recommend that before giving a pencil to your child or student, start these worksheets with crayons as crayons are easier to be gripped by little hands.  Each worksheet also has a coloring activity so that the children don't get bored by just tracing. Each picture for coloring also starts with the correct letter so that parents and teachers can also teach the sound of the letter at the same time. I hope you like these free worksheets for tracing alphabets . I am giving a few pictures below to give you an idea  of what is inside the PDF file that contains all 26 worksheets for A

Read and Write about Superheroes

Superheroes  🦸   have fascinated children for many, many years since comic books came into the market for the first time.  The brightly colored comic books with short, exciting dialogues attract not just children but many adults too. Many of the old comic books have become collector's items i.e. they are very rare and expensive. With the advent of superhero movies, the fascination has reached new heights. More recently, with the advancement in special effects using computers,  movies such as Iron Man, Justice League and Avengers have enthralled adults and children alike with their nail-biting action and exhilarating stories. Children, especially boys, love to talk about their favorite superheroes. They also like dressing up as these superheroes. So why not use some cool facts about their favorite superheroes  🦸  as a reading comprehension exercise. This is the perfect way to make little kids write: Ask them to write about something that they like! I have assembled these seven cut

Learn the Colors (Urdu, Hindi, Arabic)

English  is the most common language in the world with 1.5 billion speakers   worldwide. In many countries, English is the official language. All parents want their children to excel in speaking English for their future professional success. Moreover, most of the videos for children on the popular video-sharing platform, Youtube, are in English. Hence, children start understanding and speaking English from a very young age.  However, there is a side-effect of this overpowering influence of the English language for children whose mother tongue is not English. They have started regressing in learning their mother tongue. Schools have the propensity to focus on English. Parents also strive to teach English to their children. In addition, there is not much entertainment material available in other languages on Youtube or television.  So, how should we go about teaching the native language to a child? I believe that one parent should only speak that language to the child. We have to strike

Learn the Colors

When children are born, the world is very hazy to them. They can't see the world clearly in the beginning.  By the time they are six months old, they are able to see much more clearly, move their eyes faster and can now follow objects with their eyes. This is the time when they start differentiating between different colors. It is believed that  red  is the first color seen by them 😊. This is the age when children are attracted by bright colors and are especially fascinated by contrasts. This is the main reason that you may have observed that newer toys for babies have black and white in them as these two colors are opposite of each other.😊 When the children start speaking their first words, colors are one of the first things that they start learning. Parents start telling their children the names of primary colors like red , blue and yellow . Building blocks, one of the most common toys for toddlers, are a great way of teaching children about basic colors. Another way of teachi

Pre-writing Activities for Preschoolers

Before children start to write letters and numbers, they need to do tracing activities and learn to draw straight lines, curves, slanting lines, etc. This will help them in writing the alphabets and numbers as both alphabets and numbers can be broken down into straight lines, slanting lines and curves.  I hope the following  worksheets  will help your children in mastering the tracing of lines and curves so that it will be easier for them to transition to proper writing. I believe that children shouldn't be forced to do these tracing activities until their hand muscles are fully developed and strong. Ideally, children shouldn't be asked to write with pencils until they are at least 3 yrs old. My recommendation: give them crayons  🖍️  for the following worksheets in the beginning and later, give a pencil    ✏️  for the same worksheets 😊.
