Today I thought we would work on beginning sounds a bit. Here are a few ways to do this in the backyard.
Letter cards/magnetic letters
Give your child 5-7 consonants. Find items in the backyard that begin with that sound. For example:
b- bird, d-dandelion, g- grass, h-hammock, s- sunshine, t- table, w-wheelbarrow
Show your child how to make an acrostic poem about the backyard
- Apple core
- Yellow flower
Children enjoy making acrostic poems using their name as the first letters
- Onion grass
Have fun playing with beginning sounds. This is a great skill to work on in the car. What letter does sign start with? Can you find something that starts with /t/? How many items can we count that start that same as car /c/?
