I told the class that we had a new friend coming to hang out with us for the week. They were immediately so excited. After showing them our new friend, I told them that Scaredy Cat A was here to teach us all about the short a sound. I told them that Scaredy Cat A says “aaaaaa” (as in the short a sound) because she is scared when she gets stuck between two consonants. Of course I really played it up and added lots of dramatic faces and sounds when telling them this. They thought it was hilarious!!!
