Meet the Letter G

Gorilla, goose, golf ball… what kind of a story can you make up from these words? One that is jam-packed with words that begin with the letter G, of course. And that is what one child did – she made up a grand, goofy story that we gladly animated. The letter G has rarely had such a gleeful time! When your child is done listening, and has named some of the G words in the story, maybe they can think of their own G-filled story to tell. As a bonus, at the beginning of the video, children discover how to form both the lowercase and uppercase G.

Here is a story about the letter G. You make uppercase G like this. You make a big curve to here, then a line to here. You make a lowercase g like this. You make a circle first, and then a line down that ends with a curve. Some things what begin with G are . . . Gorilla. Goose. Golf ball. Okay, here's our story. Gage the gorilla lived in a tree. One day, he saw something fly by his tree. It was a golf ball! And then another golf ball. And then another! “Hmm. I have to do something with these golf balls!” Gage thought. Each time a golf ball would go by, Gage would grab it and glue it to his tree. Gary the goose waddled to the tree. “Excuse me. I was playing golf and hit all my golf balls this way. Have you seen them?” Gary said. Just then, Gary saw the golf balls on the tree and gasped. “Hey! I want those back!” Gage the gorilla wanted to make him happy, so he said, “Okay, I’ll give you the golf balls.” He pulled and pulled, but the golf balls were glued on too tight. He couldn’t do it! “Oh no!” Gary the goose said, “I have an idea! He flew up into the tree with his golf club and took a huge swing at the golf ball, and it flew off super-duper far. He did that over and over again ’til he had all of the golf balls. Then he asked Gage the gorilla to play golf with him. The End. G! What G words did you hear in the story?
