I realize I am blogging about the Letter A in January which is not the letter most teachers are working on at this time of year. If you have already passed by this letter way back in September, please look through the resources I have found on this lesson and file away what you may need when it comes around again next year. I will be adding on letters from time to time and try to have something blogged about all of them by the start of school next year.
