* Finger and Handwriting Tracing:
Trace letter E's in upper and lower case with your index finger as you also sound out the
letter. Invite the children to do the same on their coloring
page or tracer. Encourage the children to trace the dotted letter
with your choice of sharpened crayon, fine tip marker, coloring or regular pencil
and explain the direction of the arrows and point to the numbers with arrows 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 E's: Have the children find all the
letter E's in upper and lower case on the coloring page or extended
tracer and encourage them to circle
or trace/shade them first. Visit each child to make sure they
have identified the letter E's and then discuss the locations with the poster.
