Today I want to share something that I stumbled across while playing on Pinterest way too late at night! You know...Pinterest when you should be asleep at 1 a.m.!
You can click the picture to see the original post...which just happens to be an Indiana University website. You know it's good when this Hoosier alum finds it on the IU page! GO HOOSIERS!
This activity had a limited number of letters and included words with the picture. I liked the idea and decided to modify it for beginning sounds.
This is a quick and cheap activity to set up. All you need is an index card file box, file dividers and beginning sound pictures. Guess what?! I made some cards for you so you can just download them for FREE! My materials cost me less than $5 at Wal-Mart!
Students choose a card, identify the beginning sound and file the picture behind the letter that makes the sound!
Not only are they working on sounds but a little fine motor practice is involved too!
I have two students who need lots of practice with beginning sounds so this will be introduced to them during small groups and then placed in their centers!

I want to say a HUGE and heartfelt thank you to each of you for reading my blog, commenting, following me on social media and most importantly, being my friend! You make me want to be a better teacher every day!!! In fact, you have made me a much better teacher!
Today my friend told me that I had made the top 100 PreK-2 sellers on Teachers Pay Teachers and I was in shock. I still am in shock. It's crazy. It is an amazing feeling knowing that my creations are good enough to be used in classrooms all over the country. The mister put it in the best perspective when he said that every time a common core creation is bought, a child learns. And that is what this journey is all about friends! Friendship. Learning. Teaching. And providing the best possible education for our students! Thank you for everything! How about a Kindergarten Smorgasboard party at my house this summer?! You're all invited!
I am so blessed and lucky!!! THANK YOU!
