Practice the skill within an activity

Dip and dunk Doritos

  • Write the uppercase letter and lowercase letter d on a whiteboard, name the letters, and have the children write the D and d in the air with their fingers.
  • Pass out the Doritos and bowls of dip (or paper chips and pretend dip) and point out that Doritos and dip both start with the letter D.
  • Have one child at a time be the action leader, and let him or her choose between three different ways to dip the Dorito: dip, dunk, or dig.
  • The children will follow the action leader, do the chosen action with their Doritos in the dip, and say the action as they do it (e.g.; “Dip the Dorito!”).

Apply the skill

  • Have the children write the capital letter D and the lowercase letter d all over their paper Dorito by copying the model letters from the board.
