H Hanger

  • Have the children sit at a table and help them trace both of their hands onto a piece of paper.
  • Explain that the paper hands will be “helping hands” because they will help the children know where to look for letters around the room.
  • Distribute the letter cards to the children and encourage the children to hide the letters under their helping hands in visible spaces around the room.
  • Have the children meet back at the table and display the H hanger.
  • Explain that this hanger is special because only the letter H can hang on it.
  • Allow a few children at a time to find the various helping hands around the room and choose one letter to bring back.
  • One at a time, have each child hold up his or her letter and have the group identify the letter together.
    • If the letter is an H, have the child say, “H goes on the hanger!” and hang the letter card on the hanger with a paperclip or tape.
    • If the letter is not an H, have the children put the letter to the side.
  • Continue until all of the letters have been retrieved from under the helping hands.
