  • I have written each letter in your name using bubble letters. Can you count with me how many letters you see in your name?

  • Let’s take a minute and predict how many cubes you can fit in each letter.

  • Now let’s organize our cubes and place them in each letter until each one is filled.

  • How many did you put in the first letter? How about the second? What do you notice?

  • Let’s focus on the first letter again. Can you think of any word that starts with the same sound as this letter?
