Children can color and trace the letter D's. After completing the letter coloring, encourage children to color the image and rite the word donkey on the finished coloring page.
Handwriting worksheet tips:
Encourage the children to trace the dotted letter, and explain 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.
Have the children find all the letter D's in upper and lower case on the page and encourage them to circle them.
