Our free alphabet worksheets are designed as printable alphabet letters for your child to copy as fun handwriting practice.
They're illustrated with beautiful homeschool animal pictures.
Seeing my daughter Catherine's lovely homeschool pictures of tigers, yaks and unicorns should help encourage your child to practice their own letters - especially when they belong to some of your child's favorite animals!
Writing the alphabet is even more fun when all the drawings are by another child!
I've seen loads of printable alphabet worksheets (and bought many myself) which are rather dull; I wanted to use of our homeschooling experience to create something unique.
Nothing would please us more than for you to use our free printable alphabet worksheets for handwriting practice with your child.

Before you begin, I thought I'd share my homeschool experience of what worked with teaching handwriting to William and Catherine.
I can help partly because I've seen teaching from both sides.
Catherine took to writing like a duck to water, while my son William found it a long hard struggle with quite a few tears along the way.
So I do know what it's like when writing isn't fun however hard you try and the world seems to be breathing down your neck.

We hope our homeschool alphabet animal list will make handwriting practice fun; I have to confess I thought 'Animal' was rather a long word to start on so you'll find an alternative - the Ant drawing is down to me.
And by the time we got to Zebra Catherine felt this was one of those art projects which had gone on rather long - so the rather fat Zebra with a large right ear is also my responsibility!
We enjoyed making these free printable homeschool alphabet worksheets - we hope you enjoy using them.
