KidZone Learning Letters
Letter J Worksheets
Grade Level: Kindergarten
The Letter J is a generally reliable letter. It usually makes the "juh" sound as in jam.
The letters "dg" sometimes make the /j/ sound as well (as in edge) which makes it difficult for children to spell such words. Teaching "edge" as a Word Family (edge, hedge, ledge, etc) can help.
The Letter J also makes the /y/ sound in words such as hallelujah
The activities are organized from easiest to most difficult. Feel free to go only part way through the activities depending on the comfort level of the child!

Although the activities are geared more to the preschool age group, adding one or two less challenging activities when learning the letters can be a welcome break for the kids and can be given as a bonus activity for those who finish their work early.
