Letters and Sounds

Submitted by megan.oropeza on Thu, 09/29/2022 - 12:13

Many students at our school are trying very hard to learn their letter names and sounds. One of the most powerful activities I've seen is to be able to sing the alphabet song as the kids point to the letters. Letter names are a foundational skill for all of us. Kids need to be able to anchor sounds they make to a letter that they know the name of.  Singing along as they point to letters helps them to really know their letters on a deep level. As my students have been doing this I've seen great gains, and they've become better readers and writers.
