Stop on the Lion, Snake, Giraffe, and Crocodile and ask children to describe what they look like and sound like. Then ask children how they might move. Can they move like those animals? Use these pictures to help:

are. They can jot these down on the side of the page.
Click on the Reveal Graphemes button. The /ee/ phonemes will be revealed as well as a list
