Students write their name on a piece of paper. The teacher puts uppercase letters in a bag. Each student gets an opportunity to pick a letter out of the bag and place it on top of the first letter of his or her name. The teacher gives them the sound of the letter if needed. The student says their name with the new letter as the initial sound. For example, my name is Jennifer. I chose a /b/, my new name is Bennifer.
