- Review The Letter Names
- Sing the alphabet song with the students as the puppet carefully touches each letter on your display. Make sure the students slow down when they come to L, M, N, O, P and the letters T, U, V. One good way to do this would be to have the students clap when they sing the letters N and U.
- Write on the board a word the students know how to read. Then have the students spell the word out loud with you as you point to each letter. Repeat with a few more words.
- Review The Letter Sounds
- Touch each letter on your display up to the letter "Zz" as you and your students do the chants as in the previous lessons.
- Game - Grab Bag

- Shake the bag and then have each student close her eyes and pick a letter to sign and sound out.
- Then have the whole class sign and sound out the letter.
- Seat Work
- Have each student do Worksheets 2-39A. Discuss with the students the kinds of pictures they can draw for each letter.
