Alphabet Activity: Letter C is for Crocodile
Present and display your option of alphabet letter C is for Crocodile printable materials listed in the materials column.
Present and display the poster 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 order 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 independent handwriting practice:
1. Print your choice of printable lined-paper and encourage children to draw a crocodile behind the page or print a crocodile coloring pages to color after writing practice.
2. Drawing and writing paper Encourage children to draw, color and decorate a crocodile and write letter C c. Share some images of a real crocodile to inspire the children.
