Print a card for each child with the first letter of their name. Cut it out.
On the back side of the card, put a picture of the child. Laminate cards.
Gather the children together. Have a child stand showing a picture of themselves and say:
My name is Joe. (turn card)
My letter is "J".
Can you say my sound, j-j-j-JAY.
A-D E-H I-L M-P Q-T U-X Y-Z
a-d e-h i-l m-p q-t u-x y-z
If you are working in home environment tweak the activity. Include cousins, neighbors and grandparents pictures. Change the rhyme to say.
His/Her name is Joe. (turn card)
His/her letter is "J".
I can say his/her sound, j-j-j-JAY.
