Simple Dd template to print and color
One activity you might want to consider is to make a dot frame for this template (we used a hole punch and construction paper to make our dots):
- Print the template and color in the D d. Point out to the child which is the capital D and which is the lowercase.
- There are a number of ways you can make a dot frame. On a piece of
construction paper (any color), do one of the following:
- Use a carrot cut in half -- dip in tempra paint and stamp carrot dots on the paper
- Use a bingo dauber and stamp bingo dots on the paper
- Use circular stickers and stick them to the paper
- Use a hole punch to punch holes out of multiple colors of paper.
Apply glue to the construction paper and scatter the hole punch dots on
the paper. (you can mix sequins in with the hole punch dots for a bit of
- Point out that Dd is for Dot
- Dd is also for Dark. Discuss the difference between Dark and Light colors. Ask the children which of the colors they used were Dark.
- Let dry.
- Remember to color in your letters. Throughout the alphabet lessons, use a variety of mediums for coloring the letters (crayons, pencil crayons, markers, pens, pastels water color paints, tempra paints, finger paints, etc). You can use the same dot printing technique to color your letters.
- Fold the construction paper in half and cut a rectangle out of it so
you're left with a 1 or 2 inch frame
- Cut the Dd letters out of the template and glue them onto the construction paper
- Fold the construction paper in half and cut a rectangle out of it so you're left with a 1 or 2 inch frame
- Whenever I do these projects with Kaitlyn, I get to draw pictures of words that start with the letter and then she gets to color them. Don't stress about your drawing skills... the kids will love watching you draw! Letter D words I drew were dog, daddy, drink, donut, door and dinosaur.
