Letter "N" Sound Bin
One of my current bloggy projects is to get all of my sound bins posts collected together one page. There is now a "sound bins" tab at the top of my blog under my header. I found time to photograph a couple of our bins last night so you might see a few sound bins posts today. Some posts will show the whole bin, others just the contents of the object box. I happened to set the "N" bin aside to photograph when we finished it the other day and photographed the whole shebang.
As always, the bin is a medium-sized basket that sits on our language shelves. I collect most of these objects from nearby storage on the top shelves of the school room bookcases. Typically a bin holds an initial sound search, a letter shape search, an I Spy book, the sandpaper letter, an AlphaTales book for that letter, a homemade book of pictures of things that begin with that sound, and a tin bin full of objects with the capital and lowercase letter magnets stuck to it.
Some people consider "N" to be a tough letter, but we have a rather large collection of objects for "N":
newspaper, napkin, nest, noodle, newt, nose, necklace, needle, nickle, nut, nail, nurse (nurses hat).
