Handwriting Worksheet: Preschool - Kindergarten
Finger and Pencil Tracing: Trace letter R'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 handwriting practice worksheet.

Find the letter R's:  Have the children find all the letter R's in upper and lower case on the worksheet words and encourage them to circle  these first.

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.
