Jj is for Jumping!

I loved watching the kids do this activity!
We worked together as a whole group to jump on the Jj.  Each child took a turn, while the others cheered him/her on!  I love it when they encourage each other without being prompted. 
First, the kids jumped on the uppercase J...
...then they jumped on the lowercase j!
While they jumped, they sounded out /j/, and when they finished, I asked them to name a Jj word.  Lots of kids said "jump", while others named words like "jaguar" or "jellybeans".  A couple of kids even knew some Jj names, like "Jerry" and "Julie"!
Next up is the letter Kk, which we will learn about this week.
I hope you all had an amazing Thanksgiving!
