The children identified the same letters at the beginning of 'Grandpa' and 'Green' in the title of the story. This letter combination was used to create rhyming names for the children. They became Graniel, Groliver, Grezra, Gruby, etc.
At the play dough table, several children accepted Mrs Pollock's challenge to create their names. They did a fantastic job of rolling the dough and forming the letters in the correct sequence. After making her name, Lua chose to create new letters to make the word 'car.'
Jacob decided to use the mosaic tiles to create the letters in his name.
