The Letter Ee!
Elephant Shapes - This project comes from the http://www.first-school/ website. We talked about shapes and made an elephant to go with our letter Ee. elephant puppets. We modified the templates from the http://www.first-school.ws/ website.
Ee is for Elephant - I don't have a picture of this, but I printed off block letter E and e from the dltk-kids website. Addie glued pictures of Elephants onto upper and lower case letter E. We cut out the letters and glued them to a piece of construction paper.
