10 Free Dot-To-Dot Worksheets and Printables

by Haiden 3,637 views

Finding simple and fun ways for young students to learn numbers and letters can feel like a challenge, but dot-to-dot worksheets are one of the best options! 


Typically, dot-to-dot activities give students the chance to complete a fun image, like a clown or an adorable animal. They find excitment from knowing what the image should look like in the end and even more satisfaction out of making that image come to life when they connect the dots. Most of these worksheets will ask students to draw short lines from one dot to the next, following consecutive numbers or letters, in order to finish the outline of the drawing. They are able to practice a new skill and finish off by coloring in the image!
