Holidays











Here are printable materials and some suggestions to present letter G (hard G sound).   

What is a gift?
A gift is something a person gives another without wanting anything in return; a present.

The gift theme goes well with any gift giving holiday or event.

Alphabet Activity >  Letter G is for Gift (hard g sound)
Distribute your option of G alphabet printable materials listed in the materials column.

Children Age 3 and under:
* Print letter G coloring page D'Nealian or Standard Block font and a gift coloring image behind it or on a separate page if using paints to decorate later.  Discuss other letter G words found on the worksheet.

Trace letter G'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.

* Children can trace and color the letter G's. After completing coloring the letter, encourage children to color the gift image.  Write letter G g and the word gift on the finished coloring page.

Children Ages 3+ to 6:
Alphabet - beginning letter G sound
Present your choice of a clown with a gift printable materials of your choice.
 
Finger and Pencil Tracing: 
Trace letter G'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 your 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, 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 G's:  Have the children find all the letter G'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 G's and then discuss the locations with the poster.

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

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

Letter G words
:   The worksheet and matching mini-book can be used as part of Letter G program of activities to reinforce letter practice and to identify related G words.

* Finger and Pencil Tracing
Trace letter G'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 worksheet.  Encourage the children to trace the dotted letter with your choice of sharpened crayon, fine tip marker, coloring or regular 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 G's:  Have the children find all the letter G'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 G's and then discuss the locations with the worksheet. 

Discuss other letter G words and images:  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 example.  You can print letter G 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 other G posters and coloring pages or even make a letter G classroom book using coloring images or color posters.  Visit Letter G Alphabet Printable Materials to make your choice.
