    thaaaaanks for this, mark.

    verrrrry quickly – for diversity – with enough time – have learners choose their own colors, shapes and writing instruments, et al. these choices can be used in future sharing opportunities about:
    1) reasons for choice
    2) how the shapes, colors, et al represent them
    3) other topics for diversity – same letters/different shapes, et al

      I really appreciate how you have added a diversity angle to this activity, thanks for sharing JeWeL.
