Alphabet Activity: Letter G is for Goose
Present and display your option of alphabet letter G is for Goose printable materials listed:
Alphabet Letter G Goose poster, coloring page (for early Pre-K or first letter K presentation) and extended handwriting practice worksheet (reinforcement and advanced Pre-K/K). Present and display the poster and and distribute your choice of coloring page or handwriting practice.
*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 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 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 the goose image in any colors they wish. Share some images of real geese to inspire the children.
