Here are printable materials and some suggestions to present letter F. The presentation ideally should be part of frog themed activities and/or crafts.
Alphabet Activity: Alphabet Letter F is for Frog
Present and display your option of F Frog alphabet printable activities listed in the materials column.
Children Age 4 and above:
Display poster, and distribute coloring page and/or handwriting worksheet
Finger and Pencil Tracing:
Trace letter F's in upper and lower case with your finger as you also sound out the letter on the poster. Invite the children to do the same on the worksheet. 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 numbers (on the upper right corner) 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 F's: Have the children find all the letter F's in upper and lower case on the page and encourage them to circle them first. Visit each child to make sure they have identified the letter F's and then discuss the locations with the poster.
Present the Letter F Activity Worksheet and Mini Book program. Read suggested instructions for using the worksheet and mini-book.
Letter F words: This page and matching mini- book can be used as part of Letter F program of activities to reinforce letter practice and to identify related F words.
