Playing with letter sounds is so much fun, we are always finding new ways to add in a little practice. In fact tonight after our story I asked M and M to give me a word that started with the letter M before they were carried off to bed. They answered so quickly, I decided to make it a little more challenging. “Can you think of a word that ends with the letter M?” That was a bit too difficult, but it did get Daddy in on the game.

Up the Stairs
Have your little one stop after each step and ask the question. “A makes an “A” sound. Can you think of a word that starts with “A”? Make sure they guess before they move on. If their answer is less than right, give a “Great try; octopus actually starts with O “O”.” Then let them move ahead.
The Name Game
When you are saying goodbye at a party, lean down and whisper in your little ones ear; “ J makes a “J” sound. Can you say goodbye to someone who’s name starts with a “J”? If your kids are younger, or just not that interested in letter sounds then add another clue. ““ J makes a “J” sound. Can you say goodbye to someone who’s name starts with a “J” and who wears glasses?”
