Alphabet Activity: Alphabet Letter N is for Nose
Present and display your option of N Nose alphabet printable
materials listed in the materials column. Present and display the poster and distribute the coloring page or handwriting tracer.
* Finger and Pencil Tracing:
Trace letter N'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 (first presentation) or handwriting practice worksheet.
Encourage the children to trace the dotted letters
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 N's: Have the children find all the
letter N'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 N's and then discuss the locations with the
Coloring Activity: Encourage the children to color the
letter N and nose image.
