Popcorn: Brought to You by the Letter ‘P’

Popcorn: Brought to You by the Letter ‘P’ and

the Pre-K Students at Covert Avenue School


How do you teach a three-year old the alphabet? Ask Tricia Cammaroto, a pre-K teacher at Covert Avenue School, who had things popping as her morning and afternoon students used popcorn to learn about the letter “P.” Cammaroto created this special project to teach students the sound of “P,” focus on common words starting with the letter, and encourage students to come up with adjectives to describe the popcorn. This project reinforced the district’s English language arts objectives, and encouraged students’ creativity through artwork. The young learners also took time out to enjoy the snack!


Tricia Cammaroto’s a.m. pre-kindergarten class “pops” into the hallway for a photo after creating art projects centered on popcorn and the letter “P.”


Tricia Cammaroto’s p.m. pre-kindergarten students show off their “sweet,” “crunchy” and “yummy” popcorn projects as they learn about the letter “P” and increase their vocabulary with new descriptive words.
