SMMART READING: LETTER STARTS
Summer is winding down in the northern hemisphere...sigh. Enjoy these last few weeks of playground fun weather!
Throughout the day as you come across familiar words and objects, stop to ask your child what letter a certain word starts with.
You could ask your child what letter her name starts with: “Daniela, what letter does Daniela start with? D-D-D-Daniela”. Emphasize the letter sound that the word begins with.
This activity can be fun to do on a swing outside. Pull your child towards you and ask her the letter start of a word before you let her go.
"Swing...S-S-S...Swing. What letter does Swing start with?"
When she answers correctly, or you help her and tell her the correct answer, reward her by giving her a big push on the swing.
