To my surprise, it became quite the conversation piece amongst my students and they enjoyed referring to it throughout the year. They asked me questions like, "What are the lines under the girl's chin?" "Why is she wearing different colored shirts in each photo?" "What's a palate?" "How come you don't have all of the letters of the alphabet on your board?" (I just love my kids. They are so inquisitive.) To create this bulletin board, I simply typed the Title and the Letter names into a document and then printed and laminated them as shown in the picture above and stapled it onto my wall. I've included it for you here so you can save a little time. I'm sorry but you still have to laminate. ;)
The CD rom that comes with the book is also a great tool we use frequently in my classroom. I like how you can choose to play the targeted sound and the student in the picture demonstrates correct production of the sound in isolation and then in all positions of the word. It is a great buy and a great tool. Right now Super Duper is offering 30% if you use coupon code 'school13' and the book can be purchased here.
