So, in my 12 years of teaching Kindergarten I have accumulated a lot of stuff. I have started pulling a few things out for Shrade to look at. He really liked this short vowel poster. He started pointing to pictures and I told him what they were. Now he can identify about 4-5 pictures on this chart. He even started saying "apple" since we took this out! One thing I thought was interesting is that he didn't even notice the letters, but I pointed them out to him anyway.
