Can a 2 year old actually write letters?

Updated: Jan 6, 2021

Yes some can!

From the vast majority of research I have done it looks like about age 5 years old is when preschoolers should be writing some letters. According to U.S. Department of Education from ages 3-4, most preschoolers become able to make attempts to read and write. Most kindergartners, 5 years old become able to begin to write letters of the alphabet and some words they use and hear often. It goes without saying that everyone has their pace of learning and growth. However, do you wonder if you had the right curriculum before preschool how much our kids could actually accomplish?

There is no book or how to course on parenting, and it really does take a village. Knock, knock here I'm from the village to bring you materials. These writing worksheets are great to help kids explore their handwriting here are three ways it can help.

3 WAYS TO USE “Write the Alphabet”

  1. Memorizing: Depending on what level your child might be on it is always good to go through and refresh the English alphabet.

  2. Handwriting: Use a dry erase marker on the laminated paper. Trace the capital and lowercase letters. Practice writing, repetition will help your child with hand eye coordination.

  3. Play learning: Have fun by using a paint brush with washable paint to trace the letters. Playdoh can be used to mold the shape of the letters. Use any small snacks to place on the letters to trace. The possibilities are endless.
