Alphabet Activity > Letter E is for Elf

Present and display the poster and distribute your choice of coloring page for a first introduction for younger children or extended handwriting worksheet for advanced Pre-K and higher.

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 handwriting worksheet  

Encourage the children to trace the dotted letter, and explain the direction of the arrows and point to the numbers with arrows that help them trace the letter correctly.
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.
