Teacher Mind….

What are some fun ways to help kindergarten students learn letter names and letter sounds in small group?

Ways we practice include matching letters (cards or magnetic) to their name or a friend’s name; fishing for magnetic letters; letter name or sound bingo; contests to see who can find a letter first on a chart, in a pile of letters, or in a text; or sounding out how to write the words in a sentence.

When these methods do not result in a dramatic increase in letter name/sound knowledge, it must be time to find some new  ideas. Any suggestions?
