For this activity, we used:
An old cardboard box (cut up to protect our work surface)
A paper with the letter drawn on it
Large Push Pin
First, we traced the letter D with our highlighter. We were working on the Letter D with our Dinosaur activities. I happened to print this letter from Teachers Pay Teachers, but you could easily draw your own on any piece of paper.
Then, the kids carefully used their push pins to poke as many holes as they could in their letters. As they worked, we talked about how to form the 'D' going dooowwwn, then back up to the top and aaaarrrrounnnnnd. And, yes, I dragged those words out just like that to get them to focus on how we were making our letter.
