Pretty Purple Poppies

Emergent Literacy
Amanda Shankles


In order for young readers to become better, more fluent readers, they need to be able to recognize written letters and be able to relate the sound of the spoken letter to print. This lesson will help students recognize the phoneme /p/ and use it with the written text ‘P’.






            After the reading the story, I will pass out a sheet with pictures of several objects with the words underneath the picture. The     student is to circle the picture whose name has the /p/ sound in it.
