Instructions:

1. Take advantage of the love children have for rhythm and sound. Use time
while you’re waiting for everyone to get ready for outdoor play or other
group activities to teach the sounds of the letters. (This can, and should,
begin long before children are introduced to the symbols.)
2. Use an “echo procedure” for this activity. Say the letter name and the sound it
produces using short vowel sounds (“A, /a/”). The children repeat. Then say,
“B, /b/,” and the children repeat. Continue until you have recited all the
letters.
3. Children really enjoy this activity, and when the time comes to show them
their first letter flash card, they will automatically attach the sound to the
symbol.
Note: Be sure you know the correct sounds and enunciate clearly.
