Alphabet Activities:

Children Age 3 and under:

Print letter D coloring page D'Nealian or Standard Block font and a dove coloring image behind it or on a separate page if using paints to decorate later. The letter can also be decorated with with craft feathers in white, or shades or brown as well. Discuss other letter D words found on the worksheet and word search.

Finger Tracing: Trace letter D'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 color and trace the letters. After completing the letter coloring, encourage children to color the image. Write the letters and word dove on the finished coloring page.

Handwriting worksheet tips:

Encourage the children to trace the dotted letter, and explain 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.

Have the children find all the letter D's in upper and lower case on the page and encourage them to circle them.

Children ages 3+:
