Directions

• Fold on the dotted lines.

• Say, Tell me the names of these letters. (Point to E, A, etc.)

• Next, unfold and use paper clips on the ends to make a triangular display. • This printing will be folded inside. The display will show just one line of letters at a time.

• If the child cannot name letters, look for an earlier skill, letter recognition. Ask, Which one is R? Which one is A? This shows letter recognition, but not name recall.
