What's included?

PDF vowel worksheet

Key Stage



Years R-2


This worksheet lets children practise their letter formation and handwriting by going over the dotted vowel letters.

It serves as an effective tool for children to enhance their letter formation and handwriting skills, specifically focusing on the fundamental aspect of vowels. The worksheet is designed to engage young learners in a purposeful and enjoyable activity that aids in the development of their fine motor skills and overall literacy.

This vowels worksheet presents dotted outlines of vowel letters, offering a tangible guide for children to trace over. This intentional inclusion of dotted lines not only assists in refining their letter formation but also cultivates a sense of spatial awareness as they navigate the contours of each vowel.

The emphasis on vowels is particularly crucial. After all, they constitute the building blocks of words and lay the foundation for proficient reading and writing.

In the process of tracing over the dotted letters on this vowels worksheet, children will not only hone their handwriting skills. They’ll also reinforce their understanding of the distinct shapes and structures of vowels.

Moreover, this vowels worksheet fosters a sense of accomplishment as children witness their gradual mastery of letter formation. This positive reinforcement encourages them to take pride in their progress, promoting a healthy attitude towards learning.

Jelly and Bean’s reading scheme follows the phonic progression of the UK government’s Letters and Sounds, including the introduction of the first 100 high-frequency words, followed by the next 200 words. For more, visit Check out our Amazing Handwriting Worksheets for EYFS & KS1 collection.
