Find C cookies

- Invite the children to find all of the cookie cards around the room.
- Help the children name and identify the letter on each card.
- If the letter on the card is a C, pretend to eat the cookie.
- If the letter is not a C, place the cookie in a discard pile.
- When all the cookie cards have been found and identified, have the children help you count how many C cookies they found.
Cook Caramel Cookies
- Show the children how to make caramel cookies according to the recipe.
- Note: If you do not have access to an oven, set the unbaked cookies aside and serve previously prepared caramel cookies.
Identify the target letter
- Mix up the cookie letter cards, have the children take turns choosing a card, and help them identify each letter chosen.
- If the letter is a C, have the children place the letter on one of the boxes surrounding the C cookie graphic.
- If the letter is not a C, put it in a discard pile.
- Once all of the C letter cards have been placed around the cookies, point out that the letters are placed in a circle, the same shape as a cookie.
Write the target letter
- Have the children write the letter C around the C cookie graphic (support as needed).
