Searching for Letters, Words, and Sentences
First graders are able to identify letters, words and sentences. They are asked to give examples of letters. Students discuss how most letters are not words by themselves, with the exception of I and A. They discuss how words are made up of letters. Students are divided into groups of four to play a card game with the index cards. Each student is given a piece of paper with the labels "Letters," "Words," "Sentences."
