Crafty Fingerprints: Ant's Go Marching Letter A >
Skills:  Letter A recognition, colors (black or red), numbers 1-10, and science > insects have six legs
   1. Print this letter A on white or colorful paper.  Explain the word ant starts with the letter A a.
   
   2.  The upper letter A will represent an ant hill.  Demonstrate how both upper case and lower case letters are written using finger tracing first.  Tracing with your finger, pretend that a little ant is "marching" the writing path.  Have the children do the same with their finger.  Have children trace inside the letter with a red or black coloring pencil, marker or crayon after finger tracing.
   
   3.  Fingerprints Ants marching Letter A
Use a red or black washable ink pad or dip fingers in paint to make ten fingerprint ants "marching" up and down the sides of the upper case letter A ant hill (five ants on each side) -- count out loud.  Draw six legs to the each finger print to reinforce insects have six legs.

Music > Song > The Ants go Marching
After the craft project is completed, sing this traditional song:  The Ants go Marching (music and lyrics)
