Finger and Pencil Tracing:
Trace letter A's in upper and lower case with your finger as you also sound out the
letter. Invite the children to do the same on their worksheet. Encourage the children to trace the dotted letter
with your choice of sharpened crayon, fine tip marker, coloring or regular pencil
and demonstrate the direction of the arrows and numbers that help them trace the
letter correctly. During the demonstration, you may want to
count out loud as you trace so children become aware of how the number
order aids them in the writing process.
Find the letter A's: Have the children find all the
letter A's in upper and lower case on the page and encourage them to circle
or trace/shade them first. Visit each child to make sure they
have identified the letter A's and then discuss the locations with the poster.
Discuss other letter A words, refer to worksheet. If you have illustrated alphabet books you
can also use images in them. You can also display other A posters and
coloring pages or even make a letter A classroom book using coloring
images or color posters. Visit letter
printable materials to make your choice.
