The upper portion of the activity worksheet is a foldable flash card, the lower portion is a craft to trace, color and assemble.

Craft Instructions and Learning Activities:

  • Print template: This activity worksheet is more effective and durable printed on stiff paper or card stock. To add interest, print on pastel colors.

    If working with a group, print one for display and for instruction. Distribute only the upper portion (flash card and tracer as one piece).

    Tell the children they are going to play different games with a car theme. They need to listen and follow instructions for the game.

  • Game 1: Trace and Say the Letter - Assemble the flash card:
    • Trace the large dotted letter (left) and sound out the word car and point to the image (right side).
    • Have the children trace the dotted letter with their finger first. Instruct to trace with coloring pencil or crayon.
    • Color the car image on the right.
    • Instruct children (or help) fold on the center line and apply glue. One side of the card will show the tracer and the other side the car picture.

  • Game 2: Craft - Trace, cut and assemble the craft
    The lower part of the worksheet is an easy craft that will provide opportunities to trace, cut (scissor skills) and creativity in coloring, decorating and assembly (small motor skills).
