Finger and Pencil Tracing:
Trace letter D'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. Encourage the children to
trace the dotted letter, 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 D's: Have the children find all the
letter D's in upper and lower case on the page and encourage them to
circle or trace/shade them first.
Coloring Activity: Encourage
the children to color the image in the coloring page or
worksheet. Glue some craft feathers to decorate the dove.
