The sweet smell of syrup wafted through the Reinhard pre-kindergarten wing hallway as Liz Haines’ and Alison Burke’s students celebrated “p” week by making and eating pancakes.

After reading and studying Laura Numeroff’s “If You Give a Pig a Pancake,” the students created an anchor chart of “p” words and hunted for items in the classroom beginning with the letter. The lesson culminated with a penguin craft, which was then placed in the students’ individual letter books for future reference and study of alphabet sounds.
