Finger and Pencil Tracing: Trace letter N'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 (first presentation) or handwriting practice worksheet.

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.
