Present the letter V Vulture six-piece online jigsaw puzzle to practice problem solving and view letter V in upper and lower case. Adjust number or pieces using the Change Cut button on the left.

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

*Coloring Activity: Encourage the children to color the image in the coloring page or worksheet.  Idea: after coloring, paste a few craft feathers,
