*Finger and Pencil Tracing
Trace letter C'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. 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. Letter C has a number one which indicates it is written in one continuous stroke.

*Find the letter C's: Have the children find all the letter C's in upper and lower case on the page and encourage them to circle or trace/shade them first. Make sure to indicate that the word candy corn has two letter C's. Visit each child to make sure they have identified the letter C's and then discuss the locations with the poster.
