A center activity that engages all students. I bought key chains from Oriental Trading (http://www.orientaltrading.com/clear-key-chains-a2-13752901.fltr) and attached these pictures to the key chains. I then attached the letter to the lock and the pictures to the key chains .Students have to find the lock that has the letter that matches their beginning sound.
Need locks? I got a bunch from the Dollar Tree and also asked parents to donate some.
