This Allie the Rat lesson plan also includes:
Students identify the letter a and the short vowel sound it makes. They do a tongue twister with the sound in it and write what the letter a looks like on primary paper. Students have to listen to or read a story called Pat's Jam and conclude what will happen to Pat and Pam in the story. As an assessment, children have to circle a picture if it has the short a sound and cross it out if not.
