3. Community Helpers Bingo- We will have to look at just the word to get clues to see which helper we put our cube on. This will reinforce beginning letter sounds.

Wilfrid Gordon McDonald Partridge, a rather small boy, lives next door to a nursing home in which resides Miss Nancy Alison Delacourt Cooper, his favorite friend, because she has four names as well. When Miss Nancy "loses" her memory, the intrepid Wilfrid sets out to find it for her. We will write and illustrate a page based on this book.
