Watch the magic pencil! Young writers practice letters with this tracing activity focused on lower-case j. They examine how the "magic pencil" writes, then try a few on their own. Consider using an actual "magic pencil" to demonstrate, then let students come up in front of the group to model. Decorate the pencil with feathers and glitter, and make it an honor for students to use it! Finally, young scholars trace letters to complete four CVC words, and add a letter to finish four CVC words.
