Love your plan, but unfortunately, two out of three websites under "Resources" are not working.

Thanks so much for this fabulous idea! The entire lesson is soo "complete" and incorporates it all! I cannot wait to use it with my Kindergartners and share it with their teachers!! :)

Thanks for you comment about the ABC Match game. The letter X was omitted on purpose because the ABC Match game asks students to match up the beginning letter sounds, not simply the beginning letters. When the letter X appears at the beginning of a word, it usually sounds like the letter Z. Since the true sound of the letter X does not appear at the beginning of any primary-level words, it could not be included in the game.
