Gobble Gobble: Thanksgiving Sounds

My kids hold their pencils in ways I have never witnessed before. This is not a good thing at all. We need lots of practice identifying sounds we hear at the beginning of seen be words and writing the letter that goes with it. Your students can color in the correct letter or use that handy dandy bingo marker to mix it up. I am going to be doing this activity this week and I like the idea of writing letters for a purpose! I love when you hear kids making the sounds at the top of their voices as they complete their work with no realization of how loud they are. This is so cute and funny. Grab this right here if you want it. I hope you like it.

Thanks for this Fran. I'll give it a try. I can REALLY relate to your situation with pencil grips. I have been at this job a LONG time and it seems the grips get more "interesting" every year!! Everything from holding it up close to the eraser, to twirling it around between the fingers like a mini baton! The scissor grip is another one that blows me away at times.

THANKS again!
