Finger and Pencil Tracing: Trace letter X'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 X's:  Have the children find all the letter X's in upper and lower case on the page and encourage them to circle them first.

For advanced independent handwriting practice:
1. Print your choice of printable lined-paper and encourage children to draw an fox behind the page or print a fox coloring page.
2.  Drawing and writing paper > Encourage children to draw and color an fox and write letter X x.
