FREE Printable Reading and Writing qu words Worksheets

There are letters in our alphabet that really aren’t used that often. And to be honest, I expected my little ones to just figure them out.

Though I hate making tons of copies, in this case, I prefer the only using it once method. My daughter struggles with fine motor skills, and our physical therapist recommends not using dry erase markers to practice writing. At first, I was frustrated. That meant extra copies of handwriting pages and just more paper in general. But the reasoning behind it made perfect sense. A dry-erase marker requires very little pressure when writing compared to a pencil. And my little one needs to practice writing with a pencil and making her marks come out dark and clear.

So the way we did this activity was by grabbing some do-a-dot markers and a pencil.

Of course, if you don’t have a child that struggles with writing with a pencil, doing this activity with a dry erase marker is a fantastic idea. Simply place the paper in a sheet protector, grab a dry erase marker, and something to cover up the words. (marbles, snap cubes, red/yellow circles, etc)

All our sweet little ones need to learn these two important rules about qu!

  1. The /kw/ sound is almost always spelled with a qu. Or when you see qu, you say /kw/.
  2. In our wonderful English language, you never write a q without an u.

Reading qu

Before we began reading we reviewed the magic e words.

Some of the words are closed-door words or words that are short vowels.

  1. quilt
  2. quill
  3. quiz
  4. squash
  5. quench

qu worksheet

Others end with a silent e, to make the vowel long.

  1. quake
  2. quite
  3. quote

Once we read the words at the top of the page and practiced writing them, we then found those words and dotted them. Sometimes I would find her dotting similar words like quilt and quill. At that point, I would have her look back at the word we were working on, and the word we dotted. I’d have her sound out the word she dotted, and look at the differences. It was a great way to focus on certain letters and their sounds.
