Here are printable materials and some suggestions to present letter V and the violin.

Music:  The Violin
Ask the children what they know about the violin.   Play three different instruments including the violin, and have them select the one they think is a violin.  Ask children if they can identify the instruments that are not the violin.  Here are examples to play for this exercise:
*piano (keyboard stringed)
*snare drum (percussion)  
*violin (bowed stringed)

The violin is a bowed stringed musical instrument that was "born" in Italy (find it in globe or map). Other members of the violin family are the viola, cello and double bass.  Other stringed musical instruments are the guitar, ukulele, banjo, and harp.

Alphabet Activity:  Letter V is for Violin
Present and display your option of alphabet letter V Violin printable materials listed in the materials column.

Finger and Pencil Tracing
Trace letter V'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 letters, point to the 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 V's:  Have the children find all the letter V's in upper and lower case on the page and encourage them to circle or trace/shade them first.

Coloring Activity:  Encourage the children to color the images in the alphabet page or worksheet with a variety of materials.
