Letter of the Day

Last week we started our Letter of the Day.  We will be doing different activities with each letter throughout the day.  I start by introducing the Letter of the Day and we talk about the sound it makes and different words that begin with that sound.  
We then use this Pocket Chart Sort with different fonts to sort the uppercase and lowercase letters.  As we add each card to the chart, we say the name of the letter and the sound it makes.

This Pocket Chart sort can also be used to sort different letters.

We also practice writing the letter...
...on marker boards...
...and with paper and pencil. 
(The pictures to go along with each letter are from From the Pond's Alphabet Directed Drawing pack.)

We use the songs from Scholastic's ABC Sing-Along Flip Chart to pick out the letters in text, and of course sing the songs! (The students beg for these songs all day!)

We also use our Alphabet Sticks to find the letters around the room.

You can get a copy of the Alphabet Sort here.
