Students will enjoy coloring in and decorating their own cursive letter 'd' template. Glue sand or glitter within the letter shape to create a tactile tracer for multisensory learners! These cursive templates reinforce efficient letter formation, and build an association between the letter shape and a key word that prompts the letter sound. Students can be encouraged to incorporate the key word into their tracer by coloring in the letter with colors or designs that bring the key word's image to mind! For example, my students like to color in the 'd' tracer like a dog by drawing a face in the middle of the rounded body of the letter (don't forget to add ears on top!) and letting the curling "tails" of the letter serve as legs and tails.
