    Learning letters and order of letters in name- activity during PDR to help lower level students.

  • Danielle Sanders

    Learning the letters in your name activity. This is SO cute. I would, however, make the shirts larger and have the names go left to right since this is the direction we read. This would be a great idea for a bulletin board at the beginning of the school year. Could also use with Pete the Cat's Groovy buttons
