Next we have the same format of bubble letters, but we’ve added the dotted lines with arrows and numbers to show which direction to trace the letter Aa. These are perfect for your little ones to start off with!
The first is an uppercase letter a showing the downward slanted movement from the number one down to the arrow, lift up and start again on the number 2 and go downward at a slant again to the bottom arrow, then lift up to the number 3 and draw and sideways line across to complete the uppercase letter A.
The second picture is of a lowercase letter a in which you would teach the child to start at the number one, go around and up to the number two and then straight down. (I have also included a tracing letter a video at the bottom of the page to help your child learn the process of writing if you need additional help!). The third picture is a combination of the first two: An uppercase letter A and a lowercase letter a.
The next set is of the uppercase traceable bubble letter a in varying sizes from large to medium and then from medium to small. This is great for small children as they are advancing through letter recognition and starting to work more on hand writing and proper letter formation.
