Children age 3 and under:
Print
letter D coloring page D'Nealian or Standard Block font and a duck coloring image behind it or on a separate page if using paints to decorate later.  Discuss other letter D words found on the worksheet or word search.

* Finger Tracing:
Trace letter D'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 ages 3+:

Letter D Activity Worksheet and Mini-Book
program.  Read suggested instructions for using the worksheet and mini-book.

* Finger and Pencil Tracing
Trace letter D'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 worksheet.  Encourage the children to trace the dotted letter and demonstrate 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.

*Find the letter D's:  Have the children find all the letter D'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 D's and discuss the locations.

Discuss other letter D words and images:  First 'brainstorm' and ask the children about other words that have that beginning sound and write them on a board (dry erase board) as the children come up with examples.  You can print letter d in a different bright color to make it stand out.  You can also display other D posters and coloring pages or even make a letter D classroom book using coloring images or color posters.  Visit Letter D Alphabet Printable Materials to make your choice.

Children ages 5+:
