Letter Sounds You Didn't Know About

My partner and I are starting to "test" the kindergarteners to see just how much they know. We pull the students one by one and show them the 26 letters of the alphabet in upper case and lower case. First we ask them if they know the name of the letter. Then we ask them the sound it makes. Today my partner shares this....

My partner, "What sound does this letter make?"

Kindergartener, "G, goat."

My partner, "Yes, that's a G. But what sound does it make?"

Kindergartener, "Baaaaa.......Baaaaaaa."

Laughter, a perk of the job.
