This is a perfect activity for literacy centers or early finishers. Included in this activity are 26 cards (one for each letter) for students to clip clothespins to, so I recommend laminating them! Students simply say the name of each item aloud and then determine which of the three letters listed below the item begins with. Once the students have determined the letter they clip the clothespin to the correct one! There is a card for each letter, and I focused on the short vowel sounds, as well as the hard c and hard g sounds.
