Laurie Rohm, the creator of "The Sound of 'P,'" is a teacher at Nesbit Elementary School in Tucker, Georgia. One of the things Laurie loves about kindergarteners is their high level of curiosity and energy. She taps into that energy and allows them to use all their senses to see, feel, and hear the sound that the letter p makes. This is a great example of early literacy teaching that incorporates interaction and physical activity to motivate, support learning, and make it memorable.
