Sing the song while passing the letter bag. When the song stops have the child reach in the bag, pull out a letter and name it, produce the sound, or come up with a word with the same beginning sound. (Could do this with numbers, colors, shapes, or words too)
This is a reading log and parent letter for 1st graders that a teacher can use to communicate with the parents on how to improve their child's reading skills at home and how to log the time they have spent reading.
Are you ready for the easiest classroom Christmas party? I use this idea for every class party and the children love it! Attach a copy of the letter to a brown paper bag and send one home with every child a week before the party. I always have the due date the day before our celebration just in case someone forgets.
