R is for Rabbit tracing worksheets
R is for rabbit with this set of tracing worksheet printables.
All four worksheets feature dotted uppercase and lowercase r’s to trace. Two also have a rabbit to color and the text “Rr Rabbit” One printable has correct letter formation graphics for capital and lowercase r. The final worksheet has six lines of letter tracing r tracing practice.

Children learn through repetition. As I’m sure you’ve noticed, they also really enjoy repetition.
A 2011 study demonstrated that young children learned new words more effectively when read the same story over and over again when compared to a group of their peers who hear the same set of words in multiple different stories. Hopefully that helps you feel bit better about reading the same story book ten times a day!
Your child is unlikely to master the letter r the first time they sit down to trace the letter. Instead, they will need repeated exposure and plenty of practice.
Instead of using all your ink and paper printing a huge stack of worksheets, I recommend laminating the tracing worksheets or placing them in dry erase pockets. This allows you to use the same printouts again and again without wasting time and resources printing the same page repeatedly.
Have your child trace the letters with a marker, then wipe the page clean to use it again. You can even store the pages for use again another year!
Your child may also enjoy erasing the pages – my daughter does. Erasing provides even more opportunities for developing motor skills and hand-eye coordination, so it’s great if you can get your child to wipe the pages off.
