I'll start at the end of last week and work my way back! On Fridays, we combine the two letters we've been studying that week and do a few different activities. One is a picture sort. We go over the name of each picture first and then the children get to work. The letter I was a little tricky for me to find pictures of this week. I was attempting to stay with the short /i/ sound. I found iguana, invitation and igloo. We had to talk about how "ill" was another word for "sick".
An assortment of J items!! Jars and Jello and Jasmine and Juice boxes and Jewelry and Jelly Belly Jellybeans galore!

Jennifer drew a Jaguar too!
When I introduce each letter we do a few sorts on the smart board. We usually start with an uppercase and lowercase sort of each letter and then move onto a picture sort based on the letter sounds. Here is Kailyn moving some pictures onto the J side.
Moving back to Monday and Tuesday when we learned about the letter I--
Here is Caitlyn working hard on a letter sort!
I always try to get some paper and pencil handwriting practice in as well! I love these practice pages because they are just enough! Not too much to overwhelm and frustrate the children--but just enough!
Dallas and Mario--nice work, boys!
10 letters down--16 more to go!
