As a teacher who created my own phonics puppets, getting to watch the little creatures do their job is a splendid treat. My students have a handwriting workbook with a review lesson that recaps the first six letters we’ve learned this year. In the review lesson, they read, trace, and write CVC words using those letters. This morning, one of my students read the word ham, making the motions and sounds of Huff the Horse, Antoinette the Alligator, and Mika the Mouse as she read the word. I am one happy teacher!
