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

Finger Tracing: Trace letter P'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 P's. After completing coloring the letter, encourage children to color the pineapple image. Write the word pineapple on the finished coloring page.

Children Ages 3+:
Present the
Letter P Worksheet and Mini Book program. Read suggested instructions for using the worksheet and mini-book. These materials can be used to reinforce letter practice and to identify related words.

Finger and Pencil Tracing: Trace letter P'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 lette, 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 P's: Have the children find all the letter P's in upper and lower case on the page and encourage them to circle or trace/shade them first.

Discuss other letter P words and images found in the worksheet: If you have illustrated alphabet books you can also use images in them. You can display other posters and coloring pages or make a letter P classroom book. Visit Letter P Alphabet Printable Activities to make your selection.
