Animals > Mammals > Domesticated > Llama

The llama is a domesticated pack animal of the camel family found in the Andes in Peru, valued for its soft woolly fleece. The word llama also refers to the wool, yarn and cloth made from the wool of the llama. Llamas are often creamy off white, brown, or piebald (irregular patches of color).

Other Lamoids (llama group) are the domesticated alpaca, the guanaco and vicuna that live in the wild. The baby animal or juvenile for Lamoids is called a cria (a word of baby animal in Spanish). Llamas, when trained properly, are very pleasant to be around, and they are getting certified as therapy animals for nursing homes and hospitals.

Alphabet Activities > Letter L is for Llama

Children Age 3 and under:

Print a letter L coloring page in standard block or D'Nealian font and a llama coloring page behind it or on a separate page if using finger paints to decorate later. Discuss other letter L words found on the worksheet.

Finger Tracing: Trace letter L'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.

Children can trace and color the letter L's. After completing coloring the letter, encourage children to color the coloring page and write letter L l and the word llama on the margins. Optional: glue some yarn on the llama image.

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 L's in upper and lower case on the page and encourage them to circle them.
