This printable set contains twelve pages of tracing. Six pages are of the dotted tracing format and the other six pages is of the fill-in format.
With my toddler, I found that beginning with the fill-in was great for ensuring she could re-create the letters on her own. Then, the dotted tracing helped with improving the quality of her writing.
