Target Words:

  • pants
  • pockets
  • paste

Materials:

  • Real pant or pants graphic (see below)
  • Pocket graphics (cut out)
  • Letter cards (see below)—cut out
  • Glue to paste pockets on the pants
  • Picture cards (see below)

State and model the objective

Tell the children that they will paste pockets on pants and put Ps in the pockets as they recognize and name the uppercase letter P and the lowercase letter p.

Practice the skill with an activity

Paste pockets and Ps

  • Write the uppercase letter P and the lowercase letter p on a whiteboard, name the letters, and have the children write the letter P and p in the air with their fingers.
  • Assemble the pants graphic (see below), attaching pieces 2 and 3 to piece 1 as the legs of the pants.
  • Have the children paste pockets on the pants (put glue around all the edges of the pockets except the top.)
  • Have the children take turns picking a letter card. If they pick a letter P, have the children put the letter P in a pocket or paste the letter P on the pants. If the letter that is not a P, have them discard the letter and try again.

Apply the skill

Identify the target letter

  • Have the children choose a picture card and identify the picture.
  • Point out the word at the bottom of each picture and ask the children if word starts with the letter P. If it does, have the children paste the picture on the pants or put the picture in a pocket. If it does not start with the letter P, have the children pick another card.
  • Write the name of the P pictures on the board and have the children underline the p at the beginning of each word.

Write the target letter

  • Show the children how to write the letter P.
  • Give each child a piece of paper and pencil.
  • Have the children write the letter P on the paper (provide support as needed).
  • Have the children cut out the letters and paste them on the pants graphic or put them in the pockets.
