Build letter recognition and phonemic awareness of the letter M with a Google Interactive Activity.
You Can Bank on Fun Phonics Activities with Teach Starter!
M is for Money…and we all know how much kids love money. Now even your youngest students can learn the “value” of reading with our Letter M Interactive Activity. With this resource, you can “bank” on increasing engagement, letter recognition, and phonics skills.
This is the perfect resource to enhance your reading instruction in the classroom or digital learning environment. This activity has students identifying letters, sorting upper and lowercase letters, and checking words using the letter M and its corresponding sound. With a high-dollar interface, students can drag and drop, sort, and click their way through Big Money Bank and learn about the Letter M.
To play, students will open the Google Slides activity in “edit” mode, not presentation mode. Each slide has students interacting with moveable and clickable pieces to identify, spell, write, and use different words containing the initial /m/ sound.
- This resource incorporates letter identification, sorting, initial sounds, and more!

Have students extend their knowledge by identifying other M words and creating a classroom anchor chart or poster to hang on the wall.
Have students write sentences or make a word search using M words.
🧑🏫 Group Learning
Project the slides onto a screen and work through them as a class by having students record their answers in their notebooks or mini whiteboards.
