Coffee Can Phonics

Have students or parents bring in empty coffee cans (the big metal containers). Label cans with letters of the alphabet and throughout the year add objects that start with that letter into the can. For example: for the letter R, the can might include -- rubber band, ruler, red crayon, picture of rocket, student picture (Ricky...) etc.
