SMALL LETTERS
1. c,o,a,e,s: This is the letter c. It looks like a half circle. When we complete this half circle, it becomes the letter o. Here again, is the letter c. When we add a curly tail to c, it becomes letter a! Look at the letter c carefully. If we stretch the top of c and curl it inside into a small circle, letter c turns into letter e! A small c at the top and an inverted c at the bottom, together make the letter s!
2. o,p,q,g,d,b,h: This is the letter o. When we draw a tail to the bottom left of o, it looks like the letter p. Letter p has flipped over! Now it looks like the letter q!

Now it looks like the letter d! The letter has flipped over and become the letter b! If we erase the bottom of the letter b, it will become the letter h!
3. i,l,k,j,t,f: This is the letter i. If we erase the dot of i and stretch its stem upwards, it becomes the letter l! What's that? The letter l has grown two arms! One is short and the other is long. Now it looks like the letter k! Look at the letter i again. It has grown a long curly tail. Now it looks like the letter j! Let's flip the letter j. When we remove the dot above the inverted j and draw a small line across it, it becomes the letter t. What happens to the letter t when it is inverted and flipped over? It becomes the letter f!
4. h,n,m,r,u: This is the letter h. If we erase the long stem of h, it becomes the letter n! When we join two n's together, they look like the letter m. Look at the letter n carefully.
