I have been all four of these at the same time! My storytimes are the lessons I would have wanted when I was a new, overwhelmed, and exhausted school librarian.

Nearly all terms for letter C use the hard C sound at the beginning of the word (castle, caterpillar, cuttlefish, etc.). I specifically chose not to use CH- and soft C sounds for this presentation so that students can focus on hard C.

***Please note that this presentation is designed to complement a read-aloud. The actual read-aloud story comes from you! I cannot include a recorded read-aloud due to copyright restrictions.
