Animal Letters

The students have LOVED doing our letters of the alphabet as animals.  While doing our end of the year testing, as I'm asking them what letter makes the d, d, d like dog some of them are answering me back "It's D for dinosaur Miss Shelly" 

As promised, here are pictures of our completed alphabet.  If you haven't seen them yet in your children's bags, we have started with numbers.  They all started asking as soon as we did the letter Z, "What are we going to do now, we don't have any more letters."

A is for Alligator

B is for Bumblebee

C is for Crab

D is for Dinosaur

E is for Eagle

F is for Frog

G is for Giraffe

H is for Horse

I is for Iguana

J is for Jaguar

K is for Kangaroo

L is for Lion

M is for Monkey

N is for Nest

O is for Octopus

P is for Pig

Q is for Quail

R is for Rabbit

S is for Seahorse

T is for Turtle

U is for Unicorn

V is for Vulture

W is for Walrus

X is for X-Ray
(to keep with the animal theme, we did one of a dog)

Y is for Yak

Z is for Zebra

Now what?  A great activity to do with your children is to ask them the sounds of different letters.  Have a flash card of a letter, example "P".  Show the letter without telling what the letter is.  Say three words that start with that letter and ask if they can tell you which word begins with the letter on the card.  Have them tell you the letter and move to another one.
