Rose is a prickly bush or shrub that typically bears red, pink, yellow, or white fragrant flowers, native to north temperate regions. Numerous hybrids and cultivars have been developed and are widely grown as ornamentals, for cut flowers, ingredient in fragrance, and for medicinal purposes (rose hip).

Interesting rose facts:
  • The red rose is the most popular flower for Valentine's Day.
  • The rose is the national floral emblem of the United States and England.
  • This flower is associated with the Greek goddess Aphodite, and is prominent in Greek mythology.
  • The rose is a symbol of the Virgin Mary, and eventually led to the creation of the Rosary of the Catholic church.

Handwriting Worksheet > Preschool - Kindergarten

Finger and Pencil Tracing
: Trace letter R'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 handwriting practice worksheet.

Find the letter R's
: Have the children find all the letter R's in upper and lower case on the worksheet words and encourage them to circle  these first.

Encourage the children to trace the dotted letters, 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.

Advanced independent handwriting practice:

1. Print your choice of printable lined-paper and a rose coloring page behind the page. Encourage children to color or draw a rose after writing practice.
