1. Print this letter A on white or colorful paper. Explain the word ant starts with the letter A a.
2. The upper letter A will represent an ant hill. Demonstrate how both upper case and lower case letters are written using finger tracing first. Tracing with your finger, pretend that a little ant is "marching" the writing path. Have the children do the same with their finger. Have children trace inside the letter with a red or black coloring pencil, marker or crayon after finger tracing.
3. Fingerprints Ants marching Letter A:
Use a red or black washable ink pad or dip fingers in paint to make ten fingerprint ants "marching" up and down the sides of the upper case letter A ant hill (five ants on each side) -- count out loud. Draw six legs to the each finger print to reinforce insects have six legs.
