* Finger Tracing: Trace letter J'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+ to 6:
Present the Letter J Worksheet and Mini-Book program. Read suggested instructions for using the worksheet and mini-book. These materials can be used as part of Letter J program of activities to reinforce letter practice and to identify related words.
Discuss other letter J words and images found in the worksheet. You can also display posters and coloring pages or make a letter J classroom book. For related images visit: letter J printable activities.
Finger and Pencil Tracing: Trace letter J's in upper and lower case with your finger as you also sound out the letter. Invite the children to do the same on your worksheet. Encourage the children to trace the dotted letter, 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 J's: Have the children find all the letter J's in upper and lower case on the page and encourage them to circle them first.

Craft Option DLTK's Craft: Make Styrofoam Airplanes - 2 types (3.5+)
This is such a great craft and you get to recycle those Styrofoam trays. There are two types of plane: cargo and jet templates. You may want to try this alternative: Print the template and trace the airplane body onto paper twice. Have the children color and decorate them and then glue them to the Styrofoam pieces or any thin carton.
