Animals > Birds > Goose
A goose is a water bird that looks like a duck but is usually larger, with longer neck and legs and a more pointed bill.  Some geese are raised by farmers, and some are found in the wild.  The young is called a gosling, and the male is called a gander.

Alphabet Activity:  Letter G is for Goose

Children age 3 and under
Print a letter G coloring page in standard block or D'Nealian font  and a goose coloring page from the materials column behind it or on a separate page if using paints to decorate later.  Discuss other letter G words found on the activity worksheet.

Trace letter G'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 G's. After completing coloring the letter, encourage children to color the image.  Write the word goose on the finished coloring page.

Children ages 3+

Present and display the color poster. Distribute your choice of worksheet for a first introduction for younger children or extended handwriting practice tracer for advanced Pre-K and higher.   Finger and Pencil Tracing
Using your selection of worksheet, trace letter G'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 G's:  Have the children find all the letter G'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 G's and then discuss the locations with the poster.
