Alphabet Activities > Letter C is for Clown

Present and display your option of letter C printable activities in the materials column.

Children Age 3 and under
:
Print a letter C coloring page in standard block or D'Nealian font  and a clown coloring page behind it or on a separate page if using finger paints to decorate later.  Discuss other letter C words found on the worksheet.

Finger Tracing:
Trace letter C'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 coloring page.

Trace and Color:
Children can trace and color the letter C's.  After completing coloring the letter, encourage children to color the clown coloring page and write letter C c and the word clown on the margins.

Children Ages 3+ to 6:
Alphabet - beginning letter C (hard C like K)
Present the clown printable materials of your choice.
 
Finger and Pencil Tracing: 
Trace letter C's in upper and lower case with your finger as you also sound out the letter.  Invite the children to do the same on your choice of coloring page  or handwriting practice worksheet.  

Encourage the children to trace the dotted letter with a choice of sharpened crayon, fine tip marker, coloring or regular pencil.
 
Explain the direction of the arrows and numbers (on the upper right corner) that help them trace the letter correctly.  

During the demonstration, count out loud as you trace so children become aware of how the number order aids them in the writing process.

Find the letter C's:  Have the children find all the letter C'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 C's and then discuss the locations.  

Coloring or Painting Activity:  
Encourage the children to color Letter C's and the clown image in the coloring page or handwriting worksheet.


Present the Letter C Activity Worksheet and Mini Book program.  Read suggested instructions for using the worksheet and mini-book.

Letter C words: 
The worksheet and matching mini-book can be used as part of a Letter C program of activities to reinforce letter recognition, initial handwriting practice and to identify related C words.  

Discuss other letter C words (long e sound) and images (refer to activity worksheet above):  First 'brainstorm' and ask the children about other words that have that beginning sound and write them on a board (dry erase board) as the children come up with examples.  You can print letter C in a different bright color to make it stand out.  If you have illustrated alphabet books you can also use images in them. You can also display letter C posters and coloring pages or make a letter C classroom book.  For related images visit:  Letter C Printable Materials.
