10. Put the card behind your back and explain that when you show the picture side of the card, the children should say snail trail and when you show the ai side of the card, they should say ai.
11. Ask the children to put their ‘writing finger’ or ‘pencil’ in the air and follow you in making the shape of the letters, also saying the letter formation. Repeat two times.

13. Finally, children write words using ai on whiteboards or paper.
