This is a super cute and easy way to practice the letter “j.” After a read aloud on jaguars, I reinforced the letter “j” and its corresponding sound. I then had my kiddos decorate the letter “j” in the shape of a jaguar.
You will need: construction paper, scissors, pencil, crayons, and markers.
1. Using a pencil, draw the letter “j” with two small triangles at the top corners for the jaguar’s ears.
2. Depending on your child(ren)’s age, have them cut out the letter “j” (this is great fine motor practice).
3. Have your child(ren) decorate the letter “j” using markers or crayons.
4. Remember to reinforce the sound that the letter “j” makes along with examples of words that begin with the letter “j.”
