and a long tail. Cats, also called house cats, are often kept as
pets or to catch mice and rats. Cats are carnivorous, this means
they primarily eat meat.

leopard, lion, tiger, cheetah, etc.
Letter C is for Cat
Present and display your option of alphabet
materials listed in the materials column. Present and display the poster and
and distribute the coloring page or handwriting practice worksheet.
*Finger and Pencil Tracing:
Trace letter C'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 letter
with your choice of sharpened crayon, fine tip marker, coloring or regular pencil
and explain the direction of the arrows and numbers (on the
upper right corner) 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 sequence aids them in the writing process.
*Find the letter C's: Have the children find all the
letter C's in upper and lower case on the page and encourage them to circle
or trace/shade them first. Visit each child to make sure they
have identified the letter C's and then discuss the locations with the poster.
Advanced Handwriting Practice:
1. Print your choice of printable
lined-paper. Have children draw a cat behind the lined
paper or select and print a cat
coloring page to color after writing practice.
2. Drawing and writing paper: encourage children to draw
and color a cat and practice writing
letter C c.
